How long does it take to make a MechaniCard? See one assembled from start to finish!

Have you seen the incredible new MechaniCard I posted about recently? If not, you'll want to watch that video before this one. You don't have to actually, but it will provide some good context.

In this video, creator Brad Litwin takes us through the process of making the Thumbs Up MechaniCard with the playback sped up. The video, along with Litwin's commentary, is a fascinating look at the intricate detail involved in this design. We also get to see some tools, materials, and techniques along the way -- making this an educational exercise as well.

Thumbs Up MechaniCard

I certainly learned a thing to two. I wasn't expecting so much hand-peening, but now that I've thought about it, it's clear that this is a inexpensive, strong, efficient and low-profile way to make a pivot for two or more parts.

Thanks to Brad Litwin for making this video.
