The Power of First Principles (in 600 seconds)

Once you get first principles working they become like building blocks – it’s easy to reuse them over and over again. Take a look at what you can do with a steady supply of linear actuators. So many great CNC machines from the one mechanism!

I think the lesson here is study hard and make sure you know your fundamentals. Learning music? Practice your arpeggios. Programming? Get your design patterns memorized. Homework, homework, homework.

I’m still waiting to see someone do something awesome with Rolamite. Will anyone accept the challenge?
