As there's a video to go with this brief tract on this amazing work of engineering and craftsmanship that I'm unable to upload here, please visit the website to view it. It's amazing what the best of our people have done and are still able to do so long as we put our minds to it!The Writer Automaton, Switzerland
A 240 year old doll that can write, a clockwork creation by Pierre Jaquet-Droz, a Swiss watchmaker. The doll is able to write any custom text up to 40 letters long, and it uses a goose feather to write, which he inks from time to time, including a shake of the wrist to prevent ink from spilling. His eyes follow the text being written, and the head moves when he takes some ink. You can view this doll in person at the Muse d’Art et d’Histoire of Neuchtel, in Switzerland.
