Totally Glueless – Cardboard Machines Without Glue!

I just pledged to Geoff Rayner’s Kickstarter project.

He has two fanstastic, steam-punky style paper automata kits and is looking for backers to make them into a reality. Check out the page to see them in fantastic animated action then go pledge! He has a way to go to reach his target but does have twenty days left. Fingers crossed because they do look great! Visit the page here


Mekanikos vs. The Minotaur automaton

I’ve been a fan of Dug North’s work for a while now. He makes beautiful limited edition wood and brass automata and runs the Automata blog where he showcases automata from around the web.

Recently Dug has put one of his most amazing, most complex automata for sale. Mekanikos vs. The Minotaur features all kinds of intruiging mechanism interlocking in the most ingenious ways. Check out his website to see it in action. This is a unique opportuinity to buy something truly original!
