One of my favorite exhibitors at World Maker Faire was Brad Litwin, who does exquisitely-crafted, whimsical kinetic sculptures. I gave him one of my Editor’s Choice Blue Ribbons. Now, Brad is selling these wonderful crank-powered “MechaniCards.” What a nifty gift. They sell for $45 assembled, $35 for a kit. [Via Boing Boing]

    I just finished building my Radial Engine Mechanicard. It was pretty simple and fun. Rest of the series looks like even more fun to build and share.
