Crush A Can

 

Crush a Can illustrates the extreme force that can be generated by the power of mechanical advantage.  By turning the crank and taking advantage of this 100,000:1 ratio visitors can crush a can while putting out very little physical effort.  A dial indicator measures the “crush” of each rotation. Crushed cans can be used to create an individualized, dynamic sculpture or can be repurposed in a “make it” area.
