Can you build a gimbal using wood, nails and glue?

YouTube Preview ImageLast week we challenged the students of Politecnico di Milano at the local phase of European BEST Engineering Competition. Teams  had 6 hours to project and build a gimbal (able to move on six axes of freedom) using only glue, wood, nails, wire and… creativity.

This gimbal had to be capable to test the inertial platform developed by Magneti Marelli Motorsport and equipped on all the MotoGP bikes.

Check out the video of the competition.
