Phantom Limb hinge apparatus

Phantom Limb Hinge

In 2007 I designed and fabricated this apparatus for my friends Erik and Jessica at Phantom Limb Co. to remotely open and close doors on a marionette stage for their performance, Dear Mme at BAM. By connecting the hinge pins to gears, I was able to use a hand cranked bicycle chain mechanism to control the hinges from underneath and behind the stage. I just put up some photos on a project page here, but need to put the video here until I figure some more stuff out with this site.
