Tensegrity Structure

Today I made a Tensegrity Structure. This figure is also known as a anti-gravity suspension structure, however the structure needs gravity to work. The top of the structure is pulled down by gravity, however the middle string is resisting gravity. The other strings are keeping the top of the structure from collapsing. If you flip the stucture over the top will still ‘float’. Soon I would like to make another one (or two or three) but balance it a bit better so I can put things on it.

Duopersonality

The other day I made a robot out of some KNEXs, a few household supplies, a two-color LED, and some electronics.

The KNEX motor turns the wheels making the robot move. Adjusting the switch on top of the robot makes the LED turn red or green. Later I may add a third option that makes the light mix the red and green light together to make yellow.

Haiku

For school I had to write a couple haiku’s

Winds howl outside the cave
Inside the cave's mouth
A dragon sleeps peacefully
The dark cave is bitter cold
The dragon chatters
And then creates a fire
A dog sniffs the autumn air
And then it howls
A dragon soars in the wind

The Journal of Mr. Roger Mallard, 11/3/19

11/3/19 Woke up today happy until I thought about breakfast, and when we went to get it I covered my eyes. I really did not want to see what was there. I got fruit in yogurt, and some hot cocoa with whipped cream and sprinkles.

Yay! We are in Florida! We stopped at the visitor’s center and took lots of pictures.

I looked to see how long we had left. We should be there this evening.

I got a picture by the “Florida Welcomes You” sign, and one by the dolphin. I saw shark teeth and a space suit and I tried orange juice and grapefruit juice.

We got to the Everglades at about 5:30. We are setting up our tents now. I cannot help much because I am a little light.
