Why the Wheel Is Round: Muscles, Technology, and How We Make by Steven Vogel

By Steven Vogel

There isn't any a part of bodies that totally rotates—be it a wrist or ankle or arm in a shoulder socket, we're made to curve basically thus far. And but there is not any extra primary human invention than the wheel—a rotational mechanism that accomplishes what our actual shape can't. all through historical past, people have constructed applied sciences powered by way of human power, complementing the actual talents we now have whereas overcoming our weaknesses. offering a distinct background of the wheel and different rotational devices—like cranks, cranes, carts, and capstans—Why the Wheel Is Round examines the devices and tips we've devised to be able to extra successfully move—and movement through—the actual world.

Steven Vogel combines his engineering services along with his striking interest approximately how issues paintings to discover how wheels and different mechanisms have been, until eventually very lately, powered via the frenzy and pull of the muscle tissues and skeletal platforms of people and different animals. Why the Wheel Is Round explores all demeanour of treadwheels, hand-spikes, gears, and extra, in addition to how those applied sciences various into things like handheld drills and hurdy-gurdies.  unusually, a few those units might be outfitted out of daily elements and fabrics, and Vogel’s obtainable and expansive publication comprises directions and versions in order that encouraged readers may try to make their very own muscle-powered applied sciences, like trebuchets and ballista.

Appealing to somebody excited about the heritage of mechanics and know-how in addition to to hobbyists with domestic workshops, Why the Wheel Is Round deals a charming exploration of our universal technological history in keeping with the easy notion of rotation. From our leg muscle groups powering the gears of a bicycle to our palms manipulating a mouse on a curler ball, it is going to be most unlikely to miss the fantastic feats of innovation at the back of our day-by-day devices.
