This 80-year-old Japanese toy maker wishes he could live to 200 to keep making more toys.


I am reminded of old the Japanese automatons of the 18th and 19 century, made with little or no scarce metal.

There's a great site, Cabaret Mechanical Theatre, that's all about automata.  They have links to exhibitions, related websites, even some tips on making things move  http://www.cabaret.co.uk/education/dugs-automata-tips/

I have their book "Cabaret Mechanical Movement", it's a great primer on making moveable art.  http://www.cabaret.co.uk/store/books/cabaret-mechanical-movement/

Caberet's web site seems to be having problems right now. I will have to check again later.

Makes you wonder if we will still be making steampunk stuff when we are 80?

I will continue as long as my body allows to make anything I want to. It's boring not to have an imagination nor a hobby.
I just hope I make it to 80 and beyond.
