Insectroïdes based on the philosophy of BEAM robotics


ÉTS exposition

This is l'ÉTS

ÉTS mean École de Technologie Supérieure. It is located in Montreal. This is a University for engineer.

All images in this gallery are 640 x 480 between 58Ko to 63Ko in size. 

The really complexe machine ( see below ) was design in two years by a physics teacher. Is goal was to show what you can do by combining physics element ( vapor, electromagnetic, mechanic, electric ,etc. ) to bring you a complete and functionnal machine. The goal of the machine was to blow out a candle. Everything started out by the vapor power rocket that turn around in circle to activate a switch to release two ball that roll down a track that switch on water pumps that activate a rope and...... and finally, it blow out the candle with this vortex canon. Really COOL but it didn't make the entire action in one shot. It miss about 4 on more than 150 physics principle. About 2 or 3 were human fault. Really stupid fault  He He He.

The candle in the parabola. Two track for the ball This is a vapor power rocket that turn around the poll and activate a switch. Electromagentic ring thrower.

The glass ball is supose to float in the air. It is presently floating... This is a new tank... Put your mouse over the picture for 2 second.
