Inspired by Leonardo da Vinci’s Robot Knight (built around 1495), this all-wood automaton kit will amaze your friends just as The Florentine’s device amazed kings and queens some 5 centuries ago. Leonardo built what was considered to be history’s first robot. His Robot Knight could perform many actions including shaking hands, playing the drums and could even hug an amused guest. It was rumored that the robot had another special skill…it could draw a picture.
Crank the handle steadily and an art work comes out gradually under the mechanical robot arm. Put any drawing tool into the Robot's hand, place a piece of paper into the draw area, slowly turn the small gear knob and viola! The Robot draws a single line picture!
