As per Jake and drawman amazing and incredible. Not a computer, though, since no actual computation is being done. More accurately, I think, is that it's magnificently artistic printer.

A consummate craftsman thinks aesthetically as well as practically. In addition to the automaton's writing skills, there is natural head and eye movement, making it seem like more than a machine. Amazing.

Incredible. In many ways there is more work gone into this than a modern computer.
