Bringing two worlds together.

maxon DC motors bring together robotics engineering & art: Korean artist U-Ram Choe created a sculpture that appears to breathe all on its own.

A brushed maxon RE-max 17 motor and gearhead are the powerful yet smooth force behind the breathing motion of the kinetic sculpture the Custos Cavum. Created by U-Ram Choe, this piece has its own story that weaves along mythical worlds. The Custos Cavum is a guardian of holes between two different realms, opening the holes by gnawing at them with their large front teeth. The 90% reliability of the motors was key to bringing the sculpture to life. Being in constant use, the DC motors needed to be 100% trustworthy.

To see these mythical creatures spring to life watch the video here.
