Micro Mechanisms Design Project 95-96

Micro Mechanisms

Welcome to the wonderful world of micro mechanisms here at T.U.N.S.

The design team researched and worked on the possiblities of micro mechanims and developed a few working models. The project required that a mechanism be built that could either walk, swim or fly and was to be about the size of an insect. The designs were constructed on the basis that they would be of the simplest mechanical concepts such that implementation to actual scale be possible. Each of the designs, because of availible resources, was in effect built by hand and as small as possible. The members of the design group and their perspective design were;
