Automaton Maker Profile: Minoru Takahashi

Minoru Takahashi is another of the artists with work on display in Gadgets, Gears, and Whirligigs at the Charles River Museum of Industry in Waltham, Massachusetts. I stood and turned the crank on his dragonfly automaton for several minutes. The motion is very captivating. I was really impressed with the wooden chain drive he uses.

It is a great honor to have a piece on display next to those of Minoru Takahashi.

Here is Minoru Takahashi's web site in English. There is even more to see if you click over to the Japanese version of the site.
