i’m taking a little break about the eyed patch girl sketches (but i have a bunch of sketches to put in colours). So something different today !
And yeah the robot are inspired by A.Wood hehe.
This is one of the best fucking gifs I have ever seen

Hey so Chris Hadfield wrote us an article (!) involving pooping and peeing (!!!!!!!).
#5. Going to the Bathroom in Space Is Awesome
For the solid waste, air sucks it into storage, where it’s exposed to the vacuum of space, which kills off any bacteria and neutralizes the smell. We have to brace ourselves in order to keep the digested remnants of our freeze-dried ice cream from floating off into the station, but other than a bit of an upward draft, it’s rather comfortable. The waste is packed onto returning supply ships, which burn up when re-entering the Earth’s atmosphere (so if you saw a shooting star in early 2013, you might have had me to thank, although I wouldn’t recommend wishing upon it).
For urine, men use a funnel and women use a cup. These attach to a tube that sucks the urine into storage, where it’s later converted into drinking water. It’s expensive and impractical to bring water up to the station, so every drop of refinable liquid counts. And you can pee upside down, which I did, just for fun. Wouldn’t you?
This article is a fantastic read
A Fully Mechanical 3D Printer is Mind Blowing
That’s right. Mechanical.
No computers, no motors, just the power of gravity. It could have been built 100 years ago.
The machine uses a 15kg weight to power the mechanism — it does need to be reset during the print, but that’s a small price to pay for this kind of mechanical automation.
