Have you ever wondered…

August 21, 2010

…how a sewing machine works? What about how the second hand on an analog clock is able to tick just once a second? Then you’ll definitely want to check out Complicated Mechanisms Explained in Simple Animations [World of Technology]. My personal favorites are the Maltese Cross (the mechanism behind the second hand) and the Constant Velocity Joint. Sure they are .gif animations, but they are incredibly informative and a must for any aspiring mechanical engineer. Enjoy!
