This incredible wine uncorking contraption was created by mechanical sculptor Rob Higgs. Inspired by Heath Robinson‘s mechanical drawings, Higgs constructed The Corkscrew partly out of found parts. Other components he based on existing parts which he modified and recast in bronze. Check it out in action in the video above and you’ll see that not only does this hand-cranked beast uncork the wine bottle, but it also pours you a glass! [via The Automata / Automaton Blog]
