Tensegrity Test

Tensegrity1

Way back in the dark ages of University I built several Tensegity structures. They were inspired by my reading of the thoughts of R. Buckminster Fuller, a true visionary. Those structures are long gone. This afternoon, lacking any urgent projects, I laid out the components for a test based on a Lego tensegrity structure I saw recently online.

It works. I didn’t get the tensioning screws working, but it is stable enough to prove the concept. I may use this approach in future projects.
