Here is the "I'm Thinking" automata I just completed. In previous blog posts it was referred to as "She's Thinking", but I thought a more asexual designation would be appropriate. It is just a matter of changing the haircut a little. It's about 10" tall and 7" wide.
You can use it like the infamous Magic 8 Ball by having viewers ask a question while I turn the crank without looking at the pointer. Where I stop it, they get heir answer!
Hope you enjoy it.
Automata is a creative blend of my life interests , engineering, art and woodworking.
