A set of movements controls every mechanical device. Learn one of three classic arrangements to control the direction, speed, and shape of movement. After inventing a hand-cranked, single-movement machine, you will connect it to someone else's mechanical device. Get them to work together with a series of pulleys to combine movement and meaning.
