    I think I just felt my IQ skyrocket 500 points watching this video! How could a 250-year-old proto-robot manage to completely and fundamentally redefine what programmability means almost three centuries before the idea of programming became a thing?!

    It’s so cool how even the eyes follow the writing of the letters like we do if we were writing.

    the height of the bumps over the letters are what decides the elevation for the central cam wheel reader. how that translates in to movement of the arm is utterly fascinating. one revolution of the central wheel then turns reader to the next letter. its a shame the creator couldn't work out the kinks between letters to smooth the movement of the paper. the writing is very fluid though. the next step would be to add multiple wheels and thin the tracking arm so that it can write sentences instead of what appears to be 40 letter limitations.

    Only a communed engineering genius in the calibre of Mozart could've designed and built such a masterpiece like this. I could'nt even build something remotely as good as this with a raspberry pi, electronics and code.

    I could not help thinking of prof Tim Robinson's analytical engine while watching this fascinating mechanical doll. Search "Tim Robinson's Meccano Babbage Analytical Engine Barrel (2007)". It's another neat piece of intelligent mechanical design.

  • Greg Chapman says:

    Surprised it was not deemed witchcraft in that era

  • scorpioninpink says:

    Automaton is a dying art. I hope that the younger generation starts taking up these art. That includes Mosaic, Frescoes, Clock Making, Automaton making, pottery, glass blowing, mask making, doll making, latin calligraphy, manuscript making by being a scribe, carpet making, weaving, tapestry and other type of art forms that are slowly dying.

    This is the most amazing machine that I have seen.

  • Art Vandelay says:

    This blows my mind! That people, without computers or any means of technology that we know today, could plan and create something that complex 250 years ago!

  • David Rackley says:

  • boson96 says:

    Oh man, what a great piece of art this is. This is what technology should be about, to make things elegant and beautiful.
    I can't imagine how would someone even conjure up such a marvel. This really makes me reflect upon my pathetic life.
    The music, the narration and cinematography made this even more beautiful.
