Sun cutter project by Markus Kayser

The Sun Cutter Project explores the potential of harnessing sunlight directly to produce objects. The machine is a low-tech, low energy version of a laser cutter. It uses pure sunlight, focused by a ball lens, to repeatedly cut programmed shapes in up to 0.4mm thick plywood as well as paper and card.

The diwire bender by Pensa

The DIWire Bender is a rapid prototype machine that bends metal wire to produce 2D or 3D shapes.Wire unwinds from a spool, passes through a series of wheels that straighten it, and then feeds through the bending head, which moves around in 3 dimensions to create the desired bends and curves. Vector files (e.g., Adobe Illustrator files), text files of commands (e.g., feed 50 mm, bend 90° to right…) provide DIWire’s instructions.It’s essentially a 3D printer that describes lines, instead of volumes, in space, and it could be used for anything from prototypes to customized products.

Valse automatique by Hermann August Weizenegger

“The old Orpheus played his Lyre so beautifully, that he did not only delight the ancient gods, but also made stones melt away. He would have found great joy in a collaboration of a designer and a musician together with craftsmen, sound engineers and interface designers, bringing their talents together to create a synesthetic as well as synergetic happening.”

R2B2 a kitchen machine by Christoph Thetard

Kitchen machines with an alternative drive concept. R2B2 is the result of a project to reduce private electric waste production. There are three different kitchen appliances, which are powered by rotating a flywheel with muscular strength. Electricity is not necessary anymore. Wide user studies showed, that a kitchen machine, a coffee grinder and a hand blender are the most needed driven appliances. They all can be placed in the container. A lot of other features are possible to power. All products and pieces are designed by including user studies under the topics long life, high functionality, easy cleaning, easy demounting and high quality look.

Melvin The Magical Mixed Media Machine by HEYHEYHEY

Melvin the Magical Mixed Media Machine (or just Melvin the Machine) can be described as a Rube Goldberg machine with a twist. Besides doing what Rube Goldberg’s do best – performing a simple task as inefficiently as possible, often in the form of a chain reaction – Melvin has an identity. Actually, the only purpose of this machine is promoting its own identity.

The mould is then manually manipulated to create the each object’s form before each casting, making every piece utterly unique.

Gravity stool by Jolan van der Wiel

The Gravity Stool thanks its unique shape to the cooperation between magnetic fields and the power of gravity. Departing from the idea that everything is influenced by gravitation, a force that has a strongly shaping effect, he intended to manipulate this natural phenomenon by exploiting its own power: magnetism.
