South Korean Seoul-based design studio Monocomplex Design Group has created these creative Kinetic Robots. The object applied with the mechanism induces simple behavior to a person. If the same movement is repeated or the same strength is given for constant time, desired result will come out.
A robot contains strong factor of kidult. There is little difference only in the form and structure, and a robot is a factor which gives interest and fun to adults to children. Directly manufacturing by combining the 3 objects, pencil sharpener, lamp, and music box to a robot form added with kidult factor, the kidnetic action of ‘turning’ among simple actions will be studied.
Music box is an object which has strong kinetic factor which can gain the result of sounding through the action of turning. Many gears are engaged and the part engraved in the metal plate makes a sound when it is turned.
Lamp is an object which is connected to electricity and which always has wires, and when not using, the lines are winded or folded to reduce weight.
Pencil sharpening is the principle of sharpening pencil through turning action. Turning the handle, the spiral gear inside turns and sharpens the pencil, and in the front and back of the gear, there is a fixed axis which holds it.
