1. The famous "Drinking Bird"

We tried to use the birds as spokes for the wheel. By the way: you can order the bird in exergia's Shop.

2. The construction

3. The Prototype




 

Until now we did not achieve a proper working wheel ... experiments will be continued. We would love to get some feedback.

May be you are interested in a kit for own experiments. Don't hesitate to contact us.
