This is totally amazing.

What a clever man he was 240 years ago.

The work that went into it and the detail is fantastic.

    Pierre Jaquet-Droz is a true visionary (I hope that’s the right word to use) to think that 240 years ago he designed this? imagine his dreams of the future and what he hoped the world would eventually be like huh?
