Peter's automata

One of our members, Peter Heywood, spends some of his time on art projects. He brought along a few examples of automata that he’s made to the 8th October members’ meeting.

The mechanisms of some of them are based on clothes pegs. An example of which is the flapping seagull shown here.

Why not check out Peter’s website, which covers his creative adventures in inventing, designing and making all sorts of works of art (including some robot snakes).
The website is as much about HOW he made stuff as displaying the end results.
