COOL HUNTING

François Junod

by Evan Orensten in Culture on 09 August 2006

François Junod has been making robots the old-fashioned way for over 20 years. Using precise micro-mechanics, Junod works out of his studio in Sainte-Croix pursuing his goal of making movements smoother and more human. Though he works primarily on commissions, his Modigliani-like art pieces and studio shots are well-documented here and you can find a history of automata here (complete with satisfying flash animations).
