This machine, consisting of control electronics, sensors and motor, reacts with fright to the presence of a viewer and then turns the displayed drawing quickly from the viewer’s field of vision. If the machine is left alone for one or two minutes (in other words if during this period of time there is no one within five meters), it begins to slowly turn the drawing till it can be seen completely.
