Simplisafe is an unreliable product that you don't want to rely on for your home security. Please hire a security professional to install a hardwired system or approved UL/ULC wireless system in your home.

At about 3:44, you ask the question about how long the switch piece lasts. He referenced fatigue testing which got over a million cycles before failure. Is there any kind of metric or estimation to what that equates to in terms of time in real-world use? How long would that be expected to last?

I should mention that you have compliant mechanism. It is buttons in your computer mouse. Quite old and proved design of buttons.

you should show some statics analysis for these mechanisms, and then compare them to traditional variants such as hinges and pulleys!

At 9:06 you present a clutch which is OK, but you avoid saying "centrifugal clutch." AND, you present it to your "physics girl," who likewise does not use the word "centrifugal." WTF is going on here? Rather than pretending that this is a new invention (thus insulting everyone who had a go-cart when he was a kid), you could have been honest and discussed its advantages/disadvantages with typical in-use clutches.

That elephant mechanism would be really good for earthquake protection for buildings
PIT PYG - 6 days ago
That mechanism was good for force in one direction, the X direction. For an earthquake you would need to handle forces for Z and Y as well.

+haselni thanks, that is very interesting. It seems that they are more shock adsorbent, and although I don't think they are the definition of compliant, they are very close.
