Web site dedicated to the book '507 Mechanical Movements' with animated mechanisms

So by now you must have realized how much I love the little book titled 507 Mechanical Movements: Mechanisms and Devices. Here is a review of the book I wrote years ago. I stand by it to this day. I will just go ahead and say it: buy one today!

Here's a web site dedicated entirely to this fine little book. What makes it truly interesting is that some of the diagrams are animated and there is the promise to animate more of them. This really brings the mechanisms to life and their usefulness apparent. The thumbnails in color are the ones that currently have animated versions. Can't wait to see the rest!

[ Thanks Aaron! ]

Doug,
I went through your amazon link to buy this book! I LOVE it. I am making Roentgen-esque working furniture (like a kid with blocks makes a 'skyscraper') so these mechanical movements really solve problems that don't have a straight forward gear-to-gear solution. I can't wait to see #68 and #29 animated.
