Automaton Transfusion trailer In the early 1970's when everyone in America was worrying about what was going on in Vietnam, the Unites States Army was secretly developing a way to reanimate the dead. The hope was to have the dead fight instead of the living, but the experiments were shut down when the reanimated corpses were unable to control their hunger for human flesh. Thirty years later the army has decided to reopen the project. Grover City, because of its remote location, would be the home of their main testing facilities. Without warning the experiments go horribly wrong in Grover City and the DEAD are now on the rampage, eating everyone in sight. With the town overtaken by Zombies, a group of High School seniors take it upon themselves to fight back and find a cure for this deadly disease. "Automaton Transfusion" is a non-stop adventure of four friends battling there way through swamps, forests, blood, and ZOMBIES to survive! THE FULL MOVIE TRAILER!!!! Written and Directed by STEVEN C MILLER /automatontransfusion UPDATE: THE MOVIE WILL BE RELEASE ON DVD ON MAR 4TH BY DIMENSION FILMS. CLICK THIS LINK TO ORDER:
"The Great Kundalini, Thelemagician" levitation/magician automaton by Thomas Kuntz This is a very unusual automaton sculpture by Thomas Kuntz circa 1999.The beginning of this video gives a small glimpse of the spiritroom where this figure has lived since it was made . This is a one of- a- kind automaton from the original Spiritroom.This automaton and others were borrowed from Thomas Kuntz and filmed for the movie "Parasomnia".it is an actual brass constucted automaton with its own logic mapped out on solid brass cams which relay the movements through levers wires and pulleys. ..and is NOT a film prop! The numerous and complex parts were hand machined engineered ,sculpted and painted by the artist. the background music exceprt is from Wendy Carlos' Heaven and Hell
Timberkits Rower - Wooden Automata Here is our friendly Rowboat with an Oarsman exercising around the lake of your imagination. Maybe he is practicing for a race soon! Get Grandad to make this for you or your Grandchildren and watch with interest as he puts the pieces together to create this unique model that moves with ease as he pulls the oars and moves backwards and forwards in a boat that skims across the water. This is a very good teaching aid as it shows some basic principles of both physics and engineering. It can be used as a school teaching aid as well as it demonstrates levers, cams and crank mechanism all easily related to day to day experiences. Some items are subject to the whims of fashion but wooden toys have a timeless quality and they are instructive. The creative delight in constructing our models is something that can be passed on from one generation to the next.. Build the Rower from our Maritime Series and watch the fascination as friends and family cannot help but turn the handle, time after time

Cellular Automata: Conway's Game of Life This is an example of how a simple intial condition with simple rules, can spawn chaos (Chaos Theory), and how in turn that chaos can settle down into a stable shape. It is "played" by having spaces on a grid, that either turn off or on, at each moment based on the numbers of currently on neighboring cells, invented by John Horton Conway, software used is winplot32 for rules and more examples see /lifepage/

"Chameleon Chronicles" Automaton Box by Thomas Kuntz This piece was a Commissioned automaton box for Ron Grant, author of the forthcoming beautifully illustrated childrens book "The Chameleon Chronicles".Absent from this clip are the 22 handpainted Eggs (each corresponding to a Taro card) painstakingly painted by Luba Mittelman, an excellent illuminated m***cript artist. The book itself which is still in the process of production/ binding is also missing in these clips ... in it's place for demonstrative purposes in this clip is John Dee's a "true and faithful..." The piece has 16 different functions and is completely mechanically cam and lever driven with the aid of chains pulleys and linkages,additionally (but not shown ) the dragon smokes with incense which is placed in his body through a door in the back . The piece is about three feet all with figures in roughly 1/9 scale.The footage was shot VERY quickly in less than 20 minutes before the frieght truck picked it up and took it to its owner in Texas!...Still the basic functions are shown

Timberkits Caterpillar - Wooden Automata (Close View) Transport yourself back in time to when Alice fell down the Rabbit Hole and met the Caterpillar. He is a very unusual creature to watch as he looks at the Butterfly hovering above his head as he moves along the ground. This is a very good teaching aid as it shows some basic principles of both physics and engineering. It can be used as a school teaching aid as well as it demonstrates levers, cams and crank mechanism all easily related to day to day experiences. Some items are subject to the whims of fashion but wooden toys have a timeless quality and they are instructive.

Automata - Teddy Thursday radio show Thanks for all the kind words everyone. I wasn't expecting to have nearly 50k views of this at all. I expected a limited audience of PA forumers. Gulp. PA Forum name - Bacon-BuTTy For anyone else wondering where the music at the end came from. It's from the original opening score of Bladerunner. It's probably on youtube somewhere. ------------ Teddy Thursday presents an edition of his radio show, in the world of Automata created by Jerry Holkins and Mike Krahulik. www.penny- Transcript written by Jerry Holkins.

Automata What if ad-hoc, self-organizing mesh networks were all we needed to communicate? This is a first draft, prepared for discussion at the Networked Publics Conference (Annenberg Center for Communication, April 28-29, 2006.). We welcome comments and ideas about how to improve this video. We would particularly appreciate specific suggestions about how to change the scenario and improve the narrative, or contributions of images and clips we could use. Please comment below.
Ghost Illusion Automaton by Thomas Kuntz "Une Saison En Enfer" The French poet and notorious absinthe drinker Paul Verlaine sits in the late night Parisian cafe sipping his "Humble Ephemeral absinthe". No words flow from his quill. It's nearing closing hour and through his blurred vision the Green Muse appears to him offering inspiration and a kiss... As he begins writing, a cool breeze is felt and the image of his dead friend Arthur Rimbaud appears seated next to him, but its not possible he died years before from an abscessed leg! A last sip of absinthe peels the face away from the apparition revealing a smiling death's head. He knows his bitterness and loneliness will soon be put to rest in a final slumber................ Thia automaton represents 5 months worth of development. Just from a sculptural standpoint it required making over 27 sculptural pieces from scratch including the four main characters each based on real people . The debauched, albeit groundbreaking poets Paul Verlaine Arthur Rimbaud, "The green Fairy" (modeled after Blake Bolger), and last but not least Bi bi- La -Puree (who stands outside and cues the show) resplendent in his ragged clothing, musketeer hat and stolen umbrella. From the technical side this automaton was difficult to do in small scale (roughly 1/12 scale on the interior figures) all the movements are stored on Brass cams, 12 of them just for the main movements; heads, arms, bodies etc. and other mechanisms, gears springs levers etc, to control various systems. These cams we're worked out in wood ...

"The Alchemyst's Clocktower" Automaton by Thomas Kuntz Shop Test Video for The Alchemysts Clocktower. In this "lights on" demonstration this we see the Alchemyst in his lab .This piece was designed for low lighting in a parlour setting ,this footage was taken for insurance purposes before it left for its new home in Oregon . This particular show is called "Pillars" It took many years to realize this automaton and care was used to make the advanced technology below stage adaptable in the future while keeping the figure itself purely mechanical.The Alchemyst is only 12" tall and consists of hundreds of hand machined brass and steel spieces.The tower itself consists of thousands of pieces was built from scratch out of wood, steel brass and fabric and just about any other high quality material where needed.The industrial machinery includes pneumatic valve's ,servos,clockwork,and lighting and fountain (water) systems
