This fantastic automaton created by Keith Newstead shows a gardener watering a large killer tomato and just barely getting snapped up the plant’s jaws. Keith built this colorful and charming machine as a donations box for Occombe Farm in Devon, UK. Be sure to watch to the end of the video above and you’ll get a nice view of its inner workings.
