I just finished reading The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick. I don't want to spoil it for anyone, but there is a little mechanical man involved called an automaton. I'm really excited about it and want to build one now. Check out this video. It's so amazing to me that they built these things so long ago. It would be easy to do with a little computerized man but these were all made with cogs and gears like a clock. Awesome-ness.
