Bruce Shapiro is one of the world's pioneers in DIY computer controlled kinetics. For over a decade, the California-based tinkerer has been designing software to automate a range of machines—from a stratograph, which makes highly-detailed sand art (pictured), to a series called "Sisyphus" that creates intricate mandalas in sand using a ball bearing and a tilt table. Check it out after the jump, along with an image from Shapiro's "Pipedream III," a hi-res bubble raster or embolograph that's capable of reproducing faces.
