Researching the Automaton

I’m building a second automaton from another kit I got as a Christmas present. Seeing how these little mechanical gizmos work is giving me all sorts of ideas. I’m wondering how difficult it would be to make one of these from scratch or whether adapting another kit might be an option for creating something new and unique.

I need to do some research on automata before I delve in too deeply. The mechanics is simple enough but how to expand it into something unique to me would take me forever to learn. Oh… This is complicated! I’ve just had a look at some stuff invented by the real experts and I could spend a lifetime getting to that sort of standard. No… best if I walk away from this… for now at least.

Hmm… perhaps if I start with a kids book on this…
