That is really amazing. It reminds me in a huge way of the movie Hugo, except this is honestly way more impressive -- not to mention that it's actually real. Many thanks for sharing.This is just beautiful.
Video clip taken out of a documentary about clockwork automatons. This automaton is a little boy who writes messages on to a peace of paper using ink+quill. The writing looks complacently natural, and all the clockwork fits in the torso of the boy. In the back there is a wheel where an operator can change the letters out and replace them with other letters to reprogram what the boy writes.
