Automata enthusiast and friend of Laikingland Sergio Pinese has created an automata making contest called Crankahead. With the competition deadline and Valentine’s Day fast approaching Martin Smith thought it would be fun to make a piece for both occasions and the result is The Heart Machine. It’s an alarming little machine to demand the attention of the one you love.

Martin has decided to make a small edition for people to buy and they are now available from the Laikingland webshop.
