Oh Crikey!

These guys may not have thought of everything but I can't think of anything else you could add to it right now.

It's over 9 minutes long.

From a duck to a skeleton to a robot dinosaur: scientists created this fabulous kinetic sculpture, called On the Move, to demonstrate to children the concept of energy transfer. The Launchpad team at London's Science Museum and Engineered Arts Ltd created this cause-and-effect chain of events in a warehouse in Cornwall. No soft toys were injured in the making of this film

The continuity is a bit off, but who cares, awesome! It even has a TANK.

Oh yes, like I said these guys may not have thought of everything but I can't think of anything else you could add to it right now.

I love videos like this, but I always regret that they don't add a description of the mechanisms.

That would be elsewhere I guess. Secret-life-of-machines type stuff?

Oh, yes.

I bet the "how it's made" video would be three or four times as long...

(When I did Dorkbot Anglia, Tim Hunkin was in the audience - it's nerve-wracking presenting to a hero.)

We met him once on Southwold pier, autographed-book.

Cool

(To non-Brits, Hunkin built all the good bits of Southwold Pier)
