"We would like to thank OpenBuilds community member Kyo for the design efforts put into the awesome machine known as The Sphinx! This machine quickly became an OpenBuilds community favorite and speaks for itself in all the builds inspired from it. Kyo took it to the next level with a great video build to accompany his already great electronics setup tutorial videos." -Mark Carew
