dsc04902 custom Mechanical Donkey Kong

M.S. Raynsford’s mechanical game looks super cool! And he’s working on a new version.

I finally present to you my mechanical donkey kong V1. A simplified version of the original plan due to time constraints this one rotates the Mario, jumps over the balls and operates the feed and catchment mechanisms. Made almost entirely from laser cut parts the whole design has a style all of its own. The machine was a great success and enjoyed by the public, largely reliable with most of the problems being user faults. V2 will be built in slow time after this 365 blog finishes but expect to see it at the UK Maker Faire next year.
