    At first I was blown away by this, and then I noticed that the gears change shape as they turn. Now I'm conflicted, and can't figure out if that's cheating or not. Could this be done in a way that's physically plausible?

      No in Euclidean space, as far as I'm aware.

      The many-angled ones who dwell at the bottom of the Mandelbrot set got no time for your Cartesian jibba-jabba.

      If you view it as a 2D representation of a 3D arrangement, then it seems possible. The gears aren't deforming, they're sloped away from the camera. The gear train is getting progressively further away with the greatest distance at the sigmoid.
