Adam Mayer is a friend of mine and fellow resistor who may be the most prolific person I know. When he decides to do something, he commits totally. Check out one of his previous obsessions documented in the Things video series: the teletype.

Recently he got into gears and gearing and spun that interest into a rad project to make cards with planetary gears embedded in them.

He’s uploaded the plans for the geared card and the geared planetary card to thingiverse so you can make your own!

Adam may be the best kept secret on twitter. If you’re not following him, you should do so now. He’s at http://twitter.com/phooky.

  1. yay! First Post!

    Congratulations! You win a trophy. We will be printing it on the lazzzor and getting in touch for your mailing address — Max Resistor

  2. Thanks Bre for the background about this wonderful card.
    I've seen it around but without the history or author.
    I am starting a blog (today ) about creative business cards and I hope you don't mind if I quote your blurb.
    Don't bother visiting the blog because it won't look good for a few days.

  4. That looks pretty interesting. I still can’t believe that people actually have virtual and digital business cards. Man do I feel behind the times. I am completely lost when it comes to things like this. I think I’m getting old :p

  5. Adam Mayor! I love the THINGS you do!! I would also love it if you would be so kind as to contact me. I am researching zoetropes to use on a ride we have called G-Force. It spins around and we want to wrap a graphic that will create an animation effect. I work at SPACE CAMP in Huntsville, AL and can be reached at jennc@spacecamp.com.
