    What a cute idea!

    It’s good that it’s hand cranked, because if it had an electric motor on it I’d be unable to resist the urge to dump as much power into as I could in attempt to bounce her to pieces.

  4. Incredibly fantastic!

    I see a whole new line of vibrators in the making: The Jackhammer Jill Bobble-Head vibe.

    Automata is plural.  Automaton is the singular form.

    • Cory Doctorow says:

       It appears that in the realm of modern automata (as opposed to “cellular automata” or other uses), the accepted term-of-art is “automata” for singular, presumably to distinguish hand-cranked, mechanism-over-a-box automata from other forms. IOW, “automata” is a coinage to describe a specific kind of automaton. This is definitely the usage internally in the community of automata makers.

      • Jas Strong says:

        I’m not buying it.  I’ve definitely heard people referring to them in the singular as “an automaton”.  My internal grammar nazi sends everyone except two guys out of the room, blows up at them, and then weeps.

    C’mon Ernie, Outstanding use of imagination.

  12. BobRH says:

    We all realize, of course, that she is an automaton, not an ‘automata’.

    … and in my previous comment, my ‘end pedantry’ close tag didn’t work :)

    It’s a jackhammer? D: What with the title “boing boing”, I always assumed it was a pogo stick… My world is changed forever o_o

    She’s moving in a lewd & lascivious manner.

    Jackhammer Jill is just her porn name.

    Thanks for the nice comments folks.  I enjoyed making it and watching it bounce around.  8^)

    I love it but I’d like to suggest a small improvement – make the ponytails hinged so that they bounce like in the GIF (the bouncing boobs might pose a bigger challenge).

    I want the Coop version.
