VIDEOS: The Art of Machines




I've posted on the art of automatons before.  Here are a couple more fascinating videos.



[from the description] "Swiss artist François Junod has changed the automaton into a new art form. He calls his unique creations androids - mechanical robots designed to resemble humans in both appearance and behaviour. swissinfo visited his studio in St Croix, in the Jura mountains."



This 7 minute piece is entirely in French. The machines are exquisite.

  1. Interesting vids. Automatons are so intriguing and freaky, and I mean that in a good way.

    1. Of course in a 'good way' ;-) I have yet to see one of these creations in person . . . looking forward to the day.
