Jason of JK Brickworks shows of an amazing LEGO kinetic sculpture of Greek goddess Artemis. When a crank is turned, she draws her bow and fires an “arrow” made from a piece of flexible tubing. The mechanism’s design was inspired by a wooden automata created by Del Cat.
THE BEST Automaton
Inspired by Leonardo da Vinci’s Robot Knight – an automaton he created somewhere around 1495, Robotime’s drawing machines use a series of stackable wood cams to create different sketches as you turn their hand cranks. Available in The Gambler, The Slayer, and The Robot designs. Assembly required.
LEGO artist TonyFlow76 shows off a playful scene featuring a man taking a bath. As he turns the crank, the guy scrubs his back, colorful “water” ripples and pours from the faucets. The design was inspired by this wooden automaton by Paul Spooner. If you’d love to see an official kit, show your support for the design on LEGO Ideas.
