A mesmerizing kinetic sculpture that uses a series of cam and follower mechanisms to produce a beautiful sine wave motion that in turn produces another beautiful sine wave motion of the ball bearings situated on the followers- it's basically waveception.
This design includes both an 8 horseshoe and a 16 horseshoe version.
It requires 1/2 inch (12mm) steel balls which can be found here: https://amzn.to/3ViJuL7
(You will need 16 balls for the 8 horseshoe version and 32 balls for the 16 horseshoe version)
