Merit Award :      Fun-nival

Design Brief:

The theme of our automata is a carnival. It depicts every person's best memories from their childhood. The euphoric moments will be relived through a wave of nostalgia. The rides remind us of the simplicity of such occasions, of how ecstasy is the only emotion experienced then. Our automata consists of two main features, the carousel and the sky tower. The carousel uses the mechanism of two gears, which produce a turning movement. An uneven platform allows the horses to move up and down. A single crank is used to function the sky tower. Accurate measurements enable them to function smoothly.
