Mechanical Cabaret


Footage of the Mechanical Cabaret. I was lucky enough to see this in person whilst in the Midlands, and it rocks!

The picture is of a piece by Argentinian automata-maker Pablo Lavezzari. Check his gallery out by clicking on "Galeria de fotos".

P.S.: Here's a link to a video of a 19th Century wooden automaton that writes kanji on a sheet of paper. Simply amazing.
