A Tribute To Houdins Acrobat
Dante is now on Youtube. You may find him by searching "Dante The Daring"
'Dante the Daring" performs the same routine as Robert Houdin's automaton from 1849.
The original was approximately 34 inches tall while mine is 40.
He is fully functional with the ability to nod, turn head left to right, perform somersaults and handstands.
I don't want to give away any of the secrets that allow him to perform,
but I will admit Houdin was one very clever man!
