Heron Videos

Heron of Alexandria was a bad ass (obviously or else he’d been forgotten) Greek mechanical engineer and fabricator who made incredible kinetic devices involving the movement of air, water and steam. (I’ve bloged about him in the past)

My current interest in Heron focuses on his Aeolipie — a steam jet engine. The first and simplest steam engine ever built.

I’m going to start work on a new sculpture that uses this simple principle so stay tuned.

Neat, huh?
