This week I was trying to make a more professional video about naminukas. Here is a result:

This is my first video ever with a soundtrack instead of "natural" noise generated by a vacuum pump. For the introduction I wanted to make a cool effect of camera rotating around the robot. For that I made a super simple turntable from various scrap parts. Here is my video setup:

Video setup

It is probably the lowest tech contraption I ever made:

Turntable from scrap

At the bottom there is a leg from old shower tray screwed to the wooden plank. At the top I was lucky enough to find a nut with attached big washer which can spin freely. I believe it came from big old speaker. Since washer is still too small to reliably hold heavy object I clamped it with old 3D printed parts from naminukas. Table top is just part of ceramic tile left over from last renovation project with a surface nice enough to appear in the video.

Oh my goodness the latest update is brilliant, I love it wiping out the human at the end, the tool element is absolutely fantastic, and the bridge is funny and genius really. Good video and love the simple turntable idea. Keep up the great work!
