Eske Rex: Pendulum-Powered Drawing Machine

Eske Rex’s Pendulum-Powered Drawing Machine immediately came to mind when I first saw Robert Howsare’s Drawing Apparatus. They both play off of the old spirographish connection, however the pendulum-powered machine is fascinating because it’s using gravity (transferring back and forth between potential and kinetic energy) to power the drawing, vs. being motor-powered. Science + Art FTW!
