Automaton writing machine kit

Gakken’s Otona no Kagaku “adult science” series has helped thousands of eager engineers build a massive range of gadgets and machines over the years, while Maywa Denki bridges a unique territory between music, toys, science and performance art. What happens when the two come together? Well, the 41st issue of Otona no Kagaku magazine, a set including a kit to make yourself your own Maywa Denki Automa-te Auto Writer Hand.


Build this mini “Autopen”-like contraption and it can actually write things! The original name in Japanese is “Automa-te”, which is a pun on “automaton” and “te” (hand in Japanese), and also sounds like “automate”. It is inspired by pantographic machines and the automata of the likes of Pierre Jaquet-Droz, with some of the original and inventive fun of Maywa Denki thrown into the mix.
