And here it comes.....
She was built by the Horsham museum volunteers and is there to promote Horsham Chocolate. I happened across her when I popped in earlier yesterday when I was on my day off. Here she is in action
I love a good bit of automata. It's reminded me of this rather curious little book I picked up at the local hospital book sale a couple of years ago. I wasn't sure what to expect but it proved to be a cracking good read. It's the true story of the 18th century chess playing automaton and how it beat all its human opponents.
Well worth a second look should you happen to come across a copy.
