This is my favorite 4min selection of a larger work by Ralph Steiner. The original was silent, and the DVD had it set to classical music. I have swapped the audio for an electronica/industrial track by 3 Liquid Hz – Little Boy.

Favorite movements:
@ 1:16 – counter mechanism
@ 2:55 – normal gears, but cut to engage on diagonals
@ 3:37 – SQUARE GEARS!
@ 3:41 – variable speed transfer
@ 3:46 – rotary to linear action with a 4 tooth cog

Several users have commented that these gears may be on display at The Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago, IL.

    This “free sharing” of intarmofion seems too good to be true. Like communism.
