Mechanical comic strip distributer. Designed and built in conjuntion with Marcio Ambrosio, from Kosmo.
After the success of the 2012 ‘Paper Spitters’, which toured through many of SESCs buildings through the state of São Paulo, SESC asked Kosmo to build two more for the 2014 International São Paulo Book Bienal.
We decided to maintain the same main structure that we had on the first one, however this time we chose to also use 3D Printing, replace the DC Motors for stepper motors, mechanical endstops for optical ones, and acrylic gears for 3D printed gears and rubber timing belts.
As in the other first one, we sketched the mechanisms together, Marcio designed and printed most of them, and I was responsible for the electronics and firmware.
