Here's a lovely bit of video from our friends at Cabaret Mechanical Theatre. The video features automatist Keith Newstead working on a Don Quixotie automaton. Along the way, he defines automata, where his ideas come from, how cams work, and various other details of the automaton's creation. Also shown in the video are Keith Newstead's works Under the Sea, The Flying Couch Potato, and The Brassy Mermaid. Wonderful stuff!
