This is amazing! Even today it is amazing to see a mere "clockwork" producing writing and pictures...
Is that for real?
mouser you find the strangest things
You mean the coolest things.
It reminded me of a doll I had when I was a little girl, called Sketchy, that stood in front of a desk and drew pictures. I tried to find a pic of this doll, but none I could find had the desk, which is where all the "magic" was.
But the doll was very primitive compared to this Automaton thing.
It's one of those marvels that brings out the kid in people.
