  • Re: Kerbal Space Program

    The lights for orientation is a good idea.

    Your intuitive use of the keys I am quite jealous of.

    @elyxandra yes. Cool video, but doesn't fit the movie. Just a little bit much soft core porn.

    I know I'm getting old now, because I legit liked it less because of that.

  • Re: Wonder Woman

    I could not believe how good this movie was. The characters were real and awesome.

    DC movie.. With characters!

    Re: belt vs direct drive.

    Usage of a modern material belt would alleviate much of the stretching of a pure rubber belt.

    Timing belts have a kevlar or similar material in them which doesn't stretch like rubber or steel over time.

    From the rest of a product design standpoint:

    Can't really speak to any of the aluminum machining bits, other than if you have thin metal plates, you run a much higher risk of some form of vibration showing up vs a solid chunk of metal (more mass is usually less vibration.) So in this case, I think more metal = more cost = higher quality. I would presume some testing or modeling went into this.

    I think the wires are dumb from both a practical and design aspect. Should have at least a protective sheath. It also just LOOKS weak compared to the rest of the high quality thing.
