Vintage-style Karakuri sake-serving androids

Comments (1)


If you've always wanted a slave, but are too darned ethical to buy a live one, how about a handmade sake serving automata made from cherrywood and porcelain? These lovely little robots are all based on clockwork, and use technology dating from the Edo period. 1,050,000 JPY (including tax) and they take 40 days to make. You can read more about the history of Karakuri automata at Metafilter. [GT]
