      1st again, Changi Airport

Design Brief:

Our automata is based on the very busy air traffic over changi airport. We chose changi airport as all of us were intrigued by planes and their delicate movements when they take off and touch down. Our automata also features the iconic control tower and two circulating planes to show how busy changi airport is every day as they are waiting to land. For our automata, we used mechanisms such as pear-shaped cams and bevel gears for the toy's functionality.
