Today was the start of the 37th annual Kinetic Sculpture Race. The machine pictured here was new this year and was unlike any other machine we’ve ever seen. It became an instant hit during the braking test and I only wish I had a video to show you rather than a still photo. The two riders are suspended between two huge wheels, and when they stopped, the wheels stopped, but the carriage still kept going so that they started swinging back and forth under it. Pretty cool to watch, and it quickly became the crowd favorite. I’m pretty sure it’s going to win the best engineering award this year.
