Going through some old posts, seeing what I liked in terms of this space being about something. Tensegrity is on the list for sure.
Meanwhile, somewhere on teh internets I stumbled on to a model building scheme wherein one takes bamboo skewers (for, say, kabobs) an epoxies electrical ring terminals to the ends. These make great bolt connectors, that bend according to strut length almost automagically, due to the thin-ness of the aluminum rings. As soon as I re-find the page, I’ll link to it.
In the meantime, there’s offline investigations into a possible Otrag design enhancement, a short story in the works about the last capitalist, more schooling, more drooling, more sickness, more health.
