There is a great exhibit at SFO (yes, the airport) of turn of the century slot machines. They are all brass and wood and levers and awesomeness. I imagine dorks 100 years ago getting together and presenting their clockwork projects. Here are some bad photos I managed to capture before finding out I wasn’t supposed to take photos.

OK campers, this looks like one pretty trippy movie:

Mock Up On Mu: A radical hybrid of sci-fi, spy, Western, and even horror genres, Craig Baldwin’s Mock Up On Mu cobbles together a feature-length “collage-narrative” based on (mostly) true stories of California’s post-War sub-cultures of rocket pioneers, alternative religions, and Beat lifestyles.

Note this features Dorkbot regular Kal Spelletich, who not only stars in the movie, but will be demonstrating machine art at  the opening this Wednesday at the Red Vic.  Says Kal,

Before the 7PM and 9:20 screenings on Wednesday, in front of the theater, I will be conducting experiments with Harley Alchemy and jet propulsion!

Joe-Bob says check it out!

From the irrepressible qDot comes this. Yes, it’s the theme from Portal played on the stepper motors of a CNC machine.

This has been one of my favorite websites for years. It’s like watching machines eat. See them toss in couches, cars, pianos, engine blocks, washing machines.

That’s just a summary but there’s lots more shredding porn here
