Amazing Sisyphus LEGO kinetic sculpture

Check out this amazing LEGO sculpture posted on YouTube by JK Brickworks. The kinetic sculpture depicts the myth of Sisyphus, as he pushes the boulder endlessly. The motions are very well done and the attention to detail is truly impressive. We also get a nice long look at the insides and a description of the key components that make it work.

A tip of hat to Dave Johnson and his sculpture titled Sisyphus Testing Shoes may be in order. The two sculptures seem very similar. Of course, I don't know the full story; could this be a case of independent invention? At any rate, it's a brilliant example of artistry and ingenuity.

Self-portrait drawing machine by Aaron Kramer

Check out artist Aaron Kramer's drawing machine. Using two large cams, a parallel linkage, and a great to deal of experimentation this machine is able to draw the artist's face with a single line over the course of about 15 seconds. It is still a self-portrait if a machine draws the picture? I think so...
