Hackaday editors Mike Szczys and Elliot Williams look through the most interesting hacks of the week. We spent ample time in adulation of the automatons built by François Junod; wizard-level watchmaking wrapped in endless levels of artistic detail. A couple projects stuffed into old cellphones turned Elliot’s head. We got to see what happens if you spin a gear’s teeth on two axes to make a universal spherical gear. And we conclude the episode with a look at how Windows 11 may send a lot of good hardware to recycle center, and at how toothpaste tubes sometimes miss the recycling center completely.

also the censoring this week was the “6 million dollar man” jumping or doing something superhuman.
Yeah! I thought that one would be recognizable enough. Unfortunately, I have no idea what he’s doing there — I just downloaded some sounds off the web.
thanks for mention – I needed it
I think it was more than just a mention, we both loved the active ball mechanism and all the detail you shared about the project!
