Woke up with mechanics in mind one recent spring morning, and couldn’t help but doodle some thoughts. That evening, these doodles had me building a study model, and a few days later a rough prototype had emerged from the ether of those Sunday morning dreams. We’ve been busy building and growing for a long time now…it’s a joy to still get to play from time to time.
