It always points to the center
Unexpectedly s a t i s f y i n g
The second one would be really good for working on watches or model making
I love compliant mechanisms. They're so much stronger and more precise than you would ever expect from one flexible piece of plastic, and that make them really cool to me. It's impressive how people are able to design these things.
true cursed magic right here, approved
If this was implemented in a field, I give it 2 weeks before someone figures out how to break it. You can make something completely idiot proof in all the ways you know how, but some new idiot will come along with some new kind of idiocy that just cannot be predicted.
Reminds me of that Futurama episode. Fixed point in time and space. Everything else moves around it
I’m pretty sure high levels of mathematics and structural tension where used in the making of this bad boy.
It is strapped to invisible chicken head
Even though this is BMF, I rarely get to say this, but...I'm confused af right now.
I could definitely see use with this technology in helping me to masturbate as I have a very small penis and can’t easily find it.
Can anyone tell the math or science on how that works
This is similar to 5 axis CNC machine tool positioning. The controller software constantly calculates the rotational or linear movements for each axis required for the programmed movement of the tool tip. Plus or minus 120° pitch (rotation about X or Y) and infinite rotation for roll (about Z). I can engage this tool centerpoint programming mode, command any linear+rotary move (like move 20" in X, 5" in Y, while rotating 45°pitch and 180° roll for an example) , and the controller simultaneously interpolates all 5 axes to drive the tooltip as commanded. This looks like black magic to anyone not familiar with these machines. I fully understand it, and even after 30 years it is still exciting and intriguing to watch every day.
Just like a chicken.
I find it surprisingly unsettling
Aren’t these how gimbals work. I don’t know the specifics but looks like a similar concept
Take my confused Upvote
What could be a practical aplicación this?
Reminds me of my dentist.
I want to pull it in one direction really hard to see what happens
introducing the worlds worst sex toy
Oh a witch-finder.
How is that Magic
Is this how car suspensions work? Like those off road truck type suspensions?
I fucking love this. This is so cool!
Now if only this could be implemented on penises the possibilities are endless.
I think this is cool but wtf is the point?
It? What is it
WHAT IF YOU PULL IT REALLY HARD
It’s like a chickens head
This belongs to r/compliantmechanisms.
Remind me of those door stoppers
It's those fucking mime engineers
is the first one plastic metal or paper
i used to have boners like that, when i was a teenager
Can someone explain how one would design something like this? I know it's 3D printed but how are the calculations done to get that specific shape?
Now this is try black magic fuckery
Suspension for a car!!!! Invert, put a wheel at the point position and have a smooth and stable ride. Somebody get on this!
Where can I get one
This just looked like straight porn to me
