    This video is super detailed and interesting! I’ve never dove into the construction of these machines before but I do think that they are really interesting. I knew that they were really complicated but I didn’t realize how much engineering went into actually designing them. For some reason I just imagined that people started small and added sections rather than approached them as a whole integrated system first. Also I think that there is totally and aesthetic for the white maker on blue drafting paper. It really channels the mythbusters.
