Geneva’s Drive, a mechanical mechanism used in the making of most simple has been revealed on the net by researchers (Format’s library). The mechanism is one of the best and imaginable one in the mechanical field, the reason is that it has the ability to convert a constant rotational motion into a constant intermittent discrete motion. Due to its , the mechanism can be said to be the back bone behind some of the special used recently whose operating principles could be confusing.
According to the scientist who shared a clip of how the mechanism works on his tweeter page, he said; the mechanism was used in the making of mechanical wrist watches, money counting , and movie projectors.
The reason for the assumptions is obvious through the experimental of the mechanism, which suites well in the operating principles of the mentioned . However, besides the mentioned above; the mechanism can be developed to build something much bigger and beneficial to such as; timed , load lifting and dropping , hammering , and locking/unlocking , etc.
