Automatic Scribes

We've posted about the Jaques-Droz automata before. Here is a modern interpretation!

From MB&F:
The masterpiece is housed in an unusual cage, whose aluminium frame is fitted with a liquid crystal glass, allowing the owner to mask or unveil the whole movement at will. A light touch activates the mechanism and a stylus writes the time in hours and minutes.
