      Everything is a combination of science and arts if you look closely. Even in motor winding, calculation of coils and motor dimensions is science. Fitting the coils neatly and securely is the art part.

    This is amazing, he should make a KZclip channel where he films them in action in real time. I'd put it on my TV in the background all day! A 48hr video to watch when I do laundry or cook, or a relaxing video to watch in bed while I go to sleep!
    These could be amazing for people with anxiety or mentally disabled people who need certain stimuli to keep calm... these are more than art! They are mechanical medicine for the mind!
    Edit: He has a channel; David C. Roy where he has a few of his sculptures filmed. It's pretty cool. More I'm depth than this, but I still wish he would film more of them for longer! He could probably make decent money off of views if he did, but I understand that he might not be interested in doing that. I can respect that. I hope to buy one one day!

      @『 NiqSyazz 』 I'm impossibly amused by you making it clear that Kevin2382 makes it clear that a perpetual motion machine is impossible after the builder made it clear that it's impossible, because it is, in fact, impossible. Unless it IS possible and we just don't yet know that it is possible. But I don't know if that's possible. But even if perpetual motion IS possible, these sculptures are definitely NOT perpetual motion machines because for them to be perpetual motion machines is impossible.
      Have I made myself clear?

    Beautiful. Wonder if this motion could be implemented on motion for engines to move freely and thereby more efficient.

      I doubt it. All the low hanging fruit has been picked in engine design. Brilliant minds have been trying to perfect them for over a century.

    Would be awesome to have him make a picture with say animals moving & other things moving with a wooden background behind them that you can also remove to show the working gears etc.
    You could have it displayed either way if you designed it the right way which I'll bet he could do.
    The one piece looked like a bird flying up & down & got me thinking of this.
    Funny how another person can set off an idea of your own that instantly has you thinking about another creation.
    That's what makes this all beautiful.

      @Aaaa Bbbb by full rotation, they mean full rotation of the largest piece. And it can perform the same rotation again but not with uniform time intervals.

      how do you know it was a full rotation?
      when it's designed to be not the same, even twice?
