Impossible Gears Turn Anyway

Hello my raviolis.  Grandma-ma loves to see how things work.  Especially machines.  I like the way gears work together to create motion.  They are used everywhere and if you look closely, you will see them in action all around you.  This is a video of a man who makes gears in different kinds of shapes to include gold fish.  We always see gears in a round or circular shape because they are the most efficient working in that shape.  But did you know you can create gears in many shapes and they will still work?  Take a look.

I hope you enjoyed learning about gears and if you may any, please send me the video and I will post it on raviolis for lunch.  Love to you all. Grandma-ma
