I have just finished my automata today and I want to think about the tools I needed to make my automata. I ended up making a skier but it was a snowman skier and it spun around. Here are the tools I used Hot glue gun, a exacto knife (don’t know how to spell it) , cardboard cutter, weights, sticks, tips of,straws and a lot of cardboard. I had a hard time with then hot glue gun because I burned myself with that. Overall I think this automata project was really fun!
