TIME MACHINE

A box?

Used MDF for the box, however the finished paintwork makes the impression of a real old wood. The lock is scratch built as well, as I could not find any shops or sellers that sell that type of locks, this particular lock design I found in a museum .

My 3rd big University project .
The brief was to design and make a time machine that fits in a particular century/ time era/ culture/ etc. I Chose 18/19th century science period. Its not really steam punk , although that's what a lot of people immediately think. This is more original period design . Steampunk art nowadays quite often is random cogs and wheels that don't do anything. This machine , however , works ( not in sense of time traveling) but the rings and all of the bits actually rotate and spin.

Materials : MDF, Brass, Resin ,Acrylic , chemiwood, miliput,
Paints: Brass spray paint, citadel paints,
Standard electronics: 2 Dc motors , cogs and wheels , axis , potentiometer, switches,
Both items-old broken clock, revolving pendulum, handles, (everything else is scratch built (apart electronics - batteries and dc motors etc.)
