Very pretty, I don’t know where you find the time to make all of these beautiful things.
The Golden Age – The latest issue of Swedish magazine Plaza Kvinnahighlights the trend of black and gold for a high gloss fashion spread. Reminiscent of historical onion dome churches in Russia, these trees couldn’t be simpler to construct: Just remove the screws from finials, bun feet, and table legs. Some of the more well-known RPG tabletop systems would make enjoyable MMOs, with few having already made it to the massive multiplayer online role playing game arena (or simply MMOs). This tabletop RPG, created by Jordan Weisman and set in the mid-21st century, has all kinds of elements ripe for the pickings as an MMO: street samurai and mages, orcs and elves and mutants, and a backdrop of corporate warfare. Well, OK, there is a Mechwarrior Online, but in all honesty, it should have been called Battletech Online, because Mechwarrior Online would have been a true MMO, reflecting character development against the backdrop of the Succession Wars and later, the Clan Invasion. The famed Vampire franchise put out by White Wolf Studios makes an excellent source for an MMO. This is actually a video game franchise, but it deserves a stint as an MMO (and not just a game with multiplayer capabilities) simply because of the richness of the game world and characters.
This set of tabletop rules by Marc Miller depicts as intricate a science fiction setting for an MMO as one could ever want.
There are many more RPG tabletop systems that would make enjoyable MMOs, but these listed are readily recognized.
Here is nice video of the internal mechanism of Pierre Jaquet-Droz's writing automaton.The text to be written by the automaton could be programmed.
I decided to investigate potential solutions in one of my favorite books on mechanisms, Five Hundred and Seven Mechanical Movements.
Here is neat little lizard robot kit designed to teach the basics of robotics, electronics, and mechanics. I published a post not long ago about an inexpensive Programmable DIY Mechanical Music Box that uses paper strips to program the song to be played.Here is its upscale cousin -- the Gloggomobil, made by Naef, a swiss company.
This extraordinary piece conveys three important concepts in automaton making.First, just look at what can be done with paper as the primary material. Not for automata makers specifically -- the mechanisms found in Making Wooden Mechanical Models could well be used for automata, provided the reader has a bit of ingenuity.The models themselves are nicely proportioned and well designed.
Here is a piece by artist Jason Lane entitled Dragon With Flapping Wings.He has created a series of mechanical sculptures ranging from hand-propelled works to a large scale human hamster wheel which generates electricity and plays old fairground organ music. Here is a cool looking robotics kit, which includes four motors, 24 gears, steel braces, an extendable arm, a grasping claw, six rubber tires, and a digital camera -- 300 parts in total.
Kinetic sculpture artist, Gina Kamentsky directed my attention to this piece by Aaron Kramer entitled, Bunny's Bad Dream. Here is a short video clip of The Miser's Deathbed automaton by two of my favorite artists - Paul Spooner and Matt Smith.

The photograph shown here features some of the essential tools used to solder metals together: a fan for blowing away fumes, protection for the work surface, water for cooling, a torch, solder, and flux. But many of my friends have, and of course I’ve seen plenty of cat videos on the internet (cats on the internet?
And, while the food is definitely the center of attention at the Thanksgiving table, I figured it might be nice to have some pretty decor too!
Vary the look by using a plastic knife, fork, or spoon to spread the caulk in different textures.
Games such as Dungeons & Dragons Online, Champions Online and more recently, Neverwinter, are based on actual tabletop rules. Deckers can jack in and wage combat in the realm of cyberspace while being protected by fire-throwing mages and heavily cyberwared street samurai.
The sheer choice of character classes and abilities is enough to make a player’s head swim.
By some people's definition, The Writer is an early -- perhaps the first -- version of the computer, having an input method, programmable instructions, and an output display. Below are some of the solutions I found listed by the numbers that appear in my copy of the book (Astragal Press, 1995). He is widely regarded as the father of modern magic, having taken it from the streets and into the parlors for respectable European audiences. Any of these models would be a welcome addition to the desktop of a mechanically inclined person.I have read this book from cover to cover and browsed the drawings for inspiration. As the cylinder rotates, each stud "plucks" a little finger that sounds a corresponding musical note. This kit allows you to build a huge variety of robot configurations to suit your interests or application.
Simply amazing.The scene depicts an armored knight fighting a mechanical dragon which is controlled by a goblin behind the scenes.
Take look at the work of Casey Curran, who blends text, illustration, and mechanics into his works. Each card has a points cost on it, and if a room gets more than 10 points in it, you must put your Paw Pawn in the room. Shadowrun has had several video games, one of them an online multiplayer which bombed badly. To be translated into an MMO, one of those genres, given how expensive it is to put out an MMO, would have to serve as source material. Throw in the element of danger in the progression of the character at generation, and you add an element not seen in any MMO to date. Sounds you make start and stop the robot's motion and cause its Light Emitting Diode (LED) eyes flash. Beautiful color photos in the center of the book demonstrate the skill the authors have great in fabricating with wood. Player pianos used a similar principle, but the notes were recorded on large sheets of paper, where a holes were punched in the paper to indicate which note strikes and when. If you don't already own carving tools, this could be a great first set.The kit comes with the most important carving tool of all -- the standard carving knife with a ergonomically designed handle.

What craftsmanship!From the Etsy Description:The internal mechanisms, gears and moving parts were painstakingly hand-milled and hand-calibrated with absolute precision from 14k gold. They can be rather messy creatures, even as much as they’re known for being clean, themselves. When the owners of the apartment go into a room with a Paw Pawn in it, that cat is out of the game. I made a two-ring stand for the tallest candle, a three-ring stand for the shortest candle, and I just used one ring for the medium-sized candle.
Steam has recently released a re-imagined version of the classic Sega Genesis 1994 RPG called Shadowrun Returns. There is a World of Darkness (WoD) currently in development by, of all companies, CCP, the makers of Eve Online. The clear body allows you to see what's going on inside the little beast.All components and parts are included to assemble a working lizard robot. The body, mechanical frame and wings were handcrafted from Argentium Silver, far superior to Sterling or fine silver.
The dragon also roars.Just when you think this automaton could not possibly get any better, there is more. I came across this site which offers more than just soldering technique but also a wealth of (free) information on materials, preparations, sources, etc.
The comic Catsass has long made the peculiar actions of cats a subject of humor, and now they’ve got themselves a board game up on Kickstarter.
Each one has a rich body of work to pull from and sustain an MMO incarnation with many expansion packs.
Though years away, if WoD reflects the level of detail in character models currently being demonstrated in the “Walking in Stations” portions of Eve, when finally released, the MMO will be truly breathtaking. The 6 channel radio gives you a lot of control over any robot you design with this system.The included digital camera can be mounted to the robot, allowing you to wirelessly transmit color video directly to a television. The body opens up to reveal the intricate inner movements, and fine details that just could not be left forever covered up! It's all free to view and print, but for those who prefer a 16-page color book, they can order it or download it for a fee."Most online tutorials assume you want to solder electronics. Here is a short promotional clip of the Maison de la Magie (House of Magic).There are many books by or about Robert-Houdin. The eyes are each large 10 carat Swiss Blue Topaz cabochons and the 14k gold bezel on the tail contains a 4mm Amethyst bullet shaped cabochon.Here is the listing for the dragonfly on Etsy. In theory you can program your music box to play everything from classical, to country, to heavy metal, to TV commercial jingles.In this kit, you get the music box mechanism (2 octaves in the key of C), the specialized hole punch, "Happy Birthday" pre-punched song strip, 3 blank song strips, and instructions.
