Mechanical Devices for the Electronic Experimenter covers numerous mechanisms for robotics and electronics applications. A great resource for brainstorming!


Description [Hide]

This book provides detailed information on the underlying ideas behind many of the mechanical principles used in robotics including hydraulics, pneumatics, cams, solenoids, gears, and vacuum actuators.

Full of devices you can build with readily-available materials, this is an essential read for the beginning robotics enthusiast, and will teach the experienced designer a thing or two as well. We'd also recommend this book to anyone who wants an interesting introduction to physics (without the nasty math).
