140 year old wind up archer from Japan
NO BUT THESE ARE REALLY COOL THIS IS AN AUTOMATON AND THERE ARE REALLY AMAZING AUTOMATONS LIKE there’s one called the musician, she plays the fucking piano and she’s not just a music box, her little fingers are actually pressing keys and producing music oh and she BREATHES, then there’s the draughtsman who DRAWS FUCKING PICTURES and the writer, which is like the coolest of them all, he can WRITE WORDS and not only that, but the letters inside him which allow him to write can be REORDERED so he can write any sentence that’s 40 letters long! Not only that but the writer inks his own quill and shakes it to keep the ink from spilling.
AND THE THREE I MENTIONED WERE ALL MADE BY THE SAME GUY
THAT IS THE COOLEST SHIT EVER AND I CAN NEVER CONVINCE PEOPLE OF THIS BECAUSE THEY LOOK AT THESE MOVING DOLLS AND PRACTICALLY SHIT THEMSELVES
idk if this is creepy af or just totally awesome
