I loved this the first time I saw it, ages ago.

I'm trying to figure out if automata count as a puppet. I think they do.

Anyhoo, we're fascinated by puppets here at Anime Hell. And not in some geeky way.


Is stop-action a puppet? Yes. A very slow one.

(Everything individually micced for your listening pleasure.)

Incidentally, the mechanics that make this doll work were copied for a very simple robot that caries product from one track to another where there can be no track. I can't find the video at the moment.

I still have plans to create an El Topo Gigo. Or maybe a Topo G.I.Joe?

By the way. That first video? Here's what it samples.

Someone always has to pull off something.

Topo Gigio is always fun to watch.
