Design  the Mechanism

Inspired from the automata,  I took advantage of magnets and multiple gears to enable bird's wing can lift up and down.

Build the Mechanism

 

After drawing parts in Illustrator, parts were manufactured by laser cutting.

To ensure the accuracy, all parts had been cut of cardboard.

After several iteration of cuting on cardboard and functional test, parts were cut on acrylic finally.
