This Is The Very First Mechanical Transistor [Engineering]
posted November 13 2014 17:25.51 by Giorgos Lazaridis

Think of this: Is there a mechanical device that operates as a transistor that amplifies force? No! One may confuse a lever or gears with a transistor, but these topologies do not amplify force, they convert speed into force. Gears for example can reduce the angular speed to increase the torque.

A mechanical transistor is a device that is able to multiply the force by a factor, but the input and output speeds remain the same.

The Kinematical System Laboratory of the Mechanical Engineering School at Tel Aviv University are working on such a device. Watch the following video to see how this system works.
