The Real Invention of Hugo Cabret

by Jordan Ficklin

Automatons are real things. Fantastic creations of watchmakers bygone. They absolutely fascinate me.

Link to Video, “The Lost art of Automota”

Anybody want to pay me a few hundred thousand dollars to figure out how to do this? Feel free to contact me or just make a really, really big donation and I’ll get to work right away.

First order of business is to take my family of 5 off to Philadelphia to visit the automata in the above video and then perhaps to Geneva where I know there are many more automota sitting in museums. After some first hand study I’ll sit down, design and make an automota. All I need is the big infusion of cash. Anybody?
