Machine with 23 Scraps of Paper
I often make a series of machines based on the same idea, exploring different mechanical solutions and designs. This was the second in the series and the first to use oscillating off-center wheels as cams to drive the control arms. Each scrap is activated in two places. The mind is very acute and recognizes instantly the manner in which energy flows through a system. Here, the center point always leads the peripheral point. This is important in allowing the scrap to feel as if it is flying.
