Poseables

Makers: Michael Regalbuto and Bob Brown, Santa Clara, CA

A Posable has articulated joints you can position. Some Posables are static sculptures—often they are used as figurative lamp posts or garden sculptures. Two of the Posables we have on display are kinetic sculptures—the Posables move when you press a button.
 
How Does It Work
A Poseable’s body is made of wood; its articulated joints are hinged with ball joints. Kinetic Poseables are powered by compressed air.
