Animatronic MiniMan- 04.04.06

Mark Ho pretty much apprenticed in Amsterdam with a metalworking artisan for 6 years to make this incredible little guy. With joints that mimick every motion of the human body, yet still emotionally and artistically human feeling - the ZOHO is pretty incredible… not a detail out of place, and cast in purely bronze and sterling silver. All parts are handmade - take a look at the specs: Height: 16.93” (43 cm), Weight: 13.2 lb (6 kg), Number of parts: 920 (of which 101 are found in each hand), Number of mobile parts: 85. This first artform will be limited to 25 sculptures. I can’t wait to see what happens when this type of craftsmanship meets the brains of something like the Robosapien!

Great article from the Craftsmanship Museum.
