Automaton clockwork mechanism

Craft & Design Robotics

Our friend Dug North from The Automata / Automaton Blog posted this really interesting clockwork mechanism.

This is the repaired inner mechanism of a Vichy automaton made in France in 1875. The complete automaton depicts a lady who breathes, closes her eyes, turns her head, fans herself, and lifts her glasses to her eyes.
