A Modern Cure for Insomnia

Can’t stop tossing and turning?  Big day tomorrow at work and you need your precious sleep?  Well have no fear, constant reader, because Italian Builder Gabriele Zannotti has just the tonic for what ails you.  Simply press the play button below and you’ll be nodding off in no time at all.  Instead of counting sheep or pounding the hard stuff, why not drift away to the soothing sound of this minimalist printer?  David’s animation is as flawless as the build itself and I hope he continues to explore in this relatively uncharted territory.

In his Flickr profile Gabriele also offers his considerable rendering services to his fellow digital building AFOLs.  I’m not sure if it’s free or there is a charge involved, but if you’re in the market for that kind of thing you might reach out to Mr. Zannotti for more info.

  1. Now I can’t sleep from the anxiety of a paper jam. And its soothing crunch of the fibers as it shreds the… Zzzzzzzzzz.

    I agree with Christopher, I think there should be more animation, digital or stop motion or other. Seems like a vastly untapped bit of fun and frustration. I think that the patience required for it is above my pay grade however.


    1. I couldn’t agree more, about the untapped reservoir of entertainment value out there to be had. I think I’d have the patience the but it’s well beyond my meager skills and my attention span to acquire them.
