Holy Crackers! Ein 3D-gedruckter, funktionierender Zahnrad-Ball von den Proxy Design Studios! WANT! Das Teil kann man sich bei Shapeways bestellen, ist allerdings mit 200 Dollar nicht billig. Ich will so'n Ding trotzdem!

Mechaneu v1 is the first in a series of kinetic, 3D printed objects designed to explore the limits of 3D printing as an art form. Created in a one-shot fabrication process, Mechaneu v1 features an elaborate network of interlocking gears and support structures. Spin one gear and the entire sphere is catalyzed with rotation. The effect is mesmerizing, a visualization for the eye and a tactile experience for the hands.
