MachinePix Weekly #33
This week's most popular post was a very fast cable robot 🤖 Next week's interview: the founder of iFixit, Kyle Wiens, and his mission to open source everyone's hardware 🪛
If you’ve ever tried to repair a device you own by Googling around for manuals, chances are you’ve come across iFixit. For the past 18 years, iFixit has been publishing teardowns and repair guides, selling tools kits, and advocating for consumer right to repair.
The most popular post this week was an impressive cable robot. Cable robots have made multiple previous appearances on @machinepix and are always fascinating to watch. They’re very fast, can be made very large, and have a pretty unique set of control dynamics.
I’m always looking for interesting people to interview, have anyone in mind?

Handy and clever. They also make an interior radius version.
