A few months ago, I got a chance to go visit Ernie Fosselius’ workshop with some of my peers at Make: and it was great to hang out with Ernie as he shared his work with us. Ernie makes automatons, puppets, and human powered machines that are clever and fun. Besides showing his work, there are a lot of gems of wisdom in this video for makers.

I shot this video a few months ago. Since then he’s moved his V8 mechalodeon and put it on his home-made pedal powered vehicle, pictured below.
