Biodiversity — a motorized automaton by Paul Spooner

Here is the very latest creation from the legendary Paul Spooner. He’s never made an automaton I didn’t like. Well…not that I know of, anyway.

Check out the cast of characters he’s created for this one! The little hand-carved figures look like they are attached a differential gear within the sphere which causes them to rotate in groups as the entire things rotates as a whole. The articulated joints allow the figures to flop into different positions as they are turned around.
