The plan is to compile function definition to openSCAD programs that can be printed on 3D printer to produce the cogwheels for implementing the function.

Market: Geek parents everywhere; science museum shops etc.

Status: We have code to produce cogwheels. Haven't done the printing yet. The compiler is TBD. Looking for people to continue with the project.
