Auto Rosary is like something out of THX 1138 - love it.

Auto Ink reminds me of In the Penal Colony.

It’s not my intent to mock or demean [The Rosary] in any way but, honestly, I find it a bit tedious. It’s a process simply begging to be automated.
Can we do this for all repeating aspects of religion? I'd love to send a robot to shul.

Chris Eckert's YouTube channel is really worth watching too. His kinetic art rocks!

Looks like the Tibetans are a leg up on the other religions. Automation-wise, anyway.

Wearing a discreet little bandaid in the Auto Masochist video is a nice touch
