Creative gears

I might just have found a new hobby, building gears in strange shapes, polishing the cogs and make them connect and work smoothly, like a swiss watch...

This clip is a favourite of mine, putting the gears to work solving a problem in a very elegant, simple and ingenious way.

  1. These is a certain magic beauty about these cogwheels. They dance together so smoothly, it's almost hypnothising. Other than that, I love the fact that in these mechanical constructions you can actualy SEE how things work, understand the system. With digital machines this is impossible, therefore, in my opinion, they lack a little soul.
