The Map - kinetic sculpture

     Here is another project I was involved in as an engineer. The kinetic mechanism is a part of an exhibition information kiosk, which also include a mobile application with augmented reality - user can scan a QR-code on different city regions and see additional augmented reality information and images through a mobile device.

Press - swapping machine

     This is my new piece of work - the Press, which I constructed for one advertising business here. This machine allows user to swap their small square objects (packs, boxes) for items from 20-round revolving cartridge (magazine) located inside. The whole thing is powered by arduino and four servo.

Automatic Sandglass

  I found this creation of an anonymous author a while ago and it was in a really bad condition. That gadget had some problems with mechanics and didn't work properly. But the idea of such a sandglass impressed me very much and I got to work immediately. Here you can see the result:

Now I can literally taste the flavor of my words!


  One day I had this funny idea, and I thought, “Well, there’s really nothing stopping me...” At first it was just for fun. But then…Then I drew up a sketch. And then another one.  I started tinkering around and, to make a long story short, there came a point when I realized that, for the first time in my life, I was going to build something with my own two hands. So, after a couple months of fine-tuning the communication vessels, I became the sole owner in the world of such a strange piece of work: 


 
My piece has buttons working as pumps and has pipes instead of wires. It also has a display like any other electronic panel board, but as opposed to using liquid crystals as in electronic displays, my machine’s display functions via multicoloured syrups. My machine converts words into cocktails. And, yes, it does work. Now I can literally taste the flavor of my words.
