Tea driven automata

I have recently completed my third tea driven automata. I am interested in how energy used in the home can be harnessed and these automata are a way of using the energy from my cuppa.

I have long wanted to make some automata that was fuelled by my tea but it was only after a conversation with my friend Kevin Badni that it became possible as he showed me a good way to harness the energy. Very big thanks to him.

I have just uploaded three films of the tea driven automata onto Vimeo. The links are here:

Here are some photos of the three pieces.
