Now, that's a piece of old-school engineering. Incredibly useless, though.

is this a perpetual motion machine? how is it powered? Pretty savage stuff but I'd like to see the mechanics =)

if you look carefully during the video you see that everything is linked to the movement of the center disc. I assume that disk's rotations are powered by a simple electronic motor.

Very nice craftsmanship. I am glad people still work on things like this. Wooden machines have always been fascinating to me, and this is a very fine example. Thanks for the video!

Very nice work. I wish more cultural support money from government was put to stuff similar to this instead of people standing pissing in public or painting with shit.
