Activate the Variable Applause Machine to enjoy an enthusiastic clapping of hands. However, if you twist the dial to reduce the speed, the applause changes from encouraging to sarcastic. According to designer Martin Smith, the automata was created “for when your ideas are great but no one else agrees.” The new variable speed settings allow the colored wooden hands to express a range of emotions from excitement, to approval, to snark.
Standing about 18" high, this kinetic sculpture is crafted from steel, brass, and wood. The motor runs off a 9-volt battery (not included). Each numbered piece is manufactured by Martin Smith Studios in the UK.
