The Kinetic Coffee Maker was a project for the subject Creative Mechanical Engineering. Tasked with creating a kinetic reaction, we wanted to go above and beyond and create something that also had a function. Our Kinetic Coffee Maker consisted of 3D models in Solidworks, carefully calculated based upon whether the shapes and materials would hold under the forces we planned to place upon them. The Coffee Maker is a collection of marble and domino reactions, the user places marbles in certain places. They then add water, milk and sugar to the Coffee Maker in the designated places, start the chain reaction and voila, a freshly brewed cup of coffee!
