In the 1960s, GE engineers developed the Cybernetic Anthropmorophous Machine, or Walking Truck. In 1966, the US Army awarded GE a contract for building the experimental vehicle. However, its hand and foot controls not only fatigued operators, but were impractical for prolonged use on the battlefield, so the project was discontinued. Kevin Weir at flux machine recently reanimated the Walking Truck so the mechanical beast could gallop once more. 

Here’s another thing I made for GE!Imagine this fearsome beast ambling after you on the battlefield.And then tripping over a pine cone and exploding everywhere.Also imagine a walking truck ice cream truck.

In the 1960s, GE set out to create Hardiman, a mechanical exoskeleton that could give its user the ability to lift up to 1,500 pounds. Unfortunately, the suit’s size, weight, stability and power-supply issues prevented it from ever leaving the laboratory. Kevin Weir at flux machine recently re- animated the wearable tech to help us imagine what Hardiman might have been. 

another fun GE thing

GE gave me some old photography to play around with. Here’s an Edison GIF.

The Flight feat. Keaton Henson - Dark Corners

A while back this band asked me to make them a music video. Took me over a year (because I had no idea what I was doing) but now it’s finally been released. Anyway, check it out. Pretty spooky. Might wanna watch it somewhere dark.

ft. Sarah Burton and Brad Einstein.

happy halloween from the flux machine!

(posting music video later tonight!)

Ruins of Roebling’s Works
This week I hit 10,000 followers! No idea if that’s impressive or not on the grand tumblr scale, but I’m pretty jazzed about it.
Also, the music video I made is getting released sometime around halloween. So there’s that.

BIG NEWS FROM THE FLUX MACHINE FRONT:Dear Tumblr and Tumblr followers, for the past several months, I have been working on a music video for an awesome awesome band whose name will remain a mystery. It’s been a pretty intense learning experience taking my animation chops from short-form to long-form, but I’m finally getting close to finish. I’ve never been more excited about a project. Ever. Thanks for following and spreading my work and being awesome.
Here’s a teaser gif from the video. I’ll be posting more of these from time to time.<3 Kevin
