EPISODE 04 : The Automata And Automatic Music -- Tucked away, in a quiet and pleasant suberb of New Jersey, there exists one of the most fascinating collections of artistic engineering ever collected. The collection belonged to Murtogh Guiness, of the Guiness Brewering company. Its contents are, what i can only desrcibe as the early days of robotics, engineered for our ancestor's entertainment. Dolls that perform incredible tasks, full orchestras in the middle of your parlor, and my favorite of course, a banjo that plays itself. The collection is maintaned and managed by Jere Ryder who began his interest at a very early age. He is now entrusted to the collection at the Morris Museum located in Morristown New Jersey. Keep your eyes on The Brooklyn Observatory as they occasionally take a field trip out. The museum is located at 6 Normandy Heights Road Morristown, NJ And well worth the trip if you are nearby - Jere is not only very knowlageable on the subject but also a fantastic tour guide... thanks a ton, mr. ryder, we'll see you soon no doubt!
