I can't have enough mechanical contraptions that turn everyday objects into wicked animated things. Like this painting frame that explodes just to re-assemble itself again. Or the bed that grows legs and walks while singing and dancing like Gene Kelly.

OK, maybe I just dreamed that one, but this electrically powered painting frame—all made in wood, including some beautiful gear action—is real. Or is it? I don't know. I need to stop sniffing glue with my flakes. [Dugnorth via Makezine]
