Desktop Mutoscope featuring Animations by Anna Taberko

Our friend Joe Freedman at LeafPDX wrote to tell us about a new mechanical animation project.

Joe writes:
I just launched my new Kickstarter project which is Desktop Mutoscope in collaboration with a young animator from Minneapolis, Anna Taberko. Her work consists of blooming flowers, swirling insects, and animals. These animated loops capture illustrations in a constant state of motion, whether they're moving or standing still.

Here is the Kickstarter page where you can see the animations in action. Beautiful!

Wizard automaton performing magic trick is made entirely out of LEGO!

Check out this amazing wizard automaton made by Teun de Wijs in Holland.

Teun writes:

As a kid, I was lucky enough to visit the Cabaret Mechanical Theatre in London a few times, and automata have held a lasting fascination for me ever since. Unfortunately, I don't have my own workshop for making my own gizmos, but I've recently discovered that LEGO is a pretty good alternative.

A very good alternative, indeed! Amazing work!
