Check out this “Instant Claymation machine” on WMMNA – “Animaatiokone (Animation Machine) is an installation that turns you into a master clay animator. It’s built of a potato peeling machine, a laptop PC and pinball machine buttons. First you sculpt clay actors. When you’re happy with your cast, you locate the characters inside the mini-studio (inside the Animaatiokone machine), move the actors and capture frames. An overhead display allows you to check the shooting, you can also delete or add frames on the touch of a button. When you’re finish, you can add a soundtrack.” [via] Link.
