Cycloid Drawing Machine – A designer imagines a beautiful wooden Spirograph

2016-03-03 // design gadget

The Cycloid Drawing Machine is an awesome wooden creation of designer Joe Freedman from the LEAFdisplay studio, which uses the same concept as the Spirograph from our childhood, but which replaces the plastic by an ingenious system of wooden wheels, cranks and levers. You will just need to assemble the pieces in different ways to create fascinating geometric designs! I just love it. And if you like wooden machines, I hope you have not missed the impressive Marble Machine, a musical instrument using 2000 marbles!
