Alzheimer (Ronald Reagan) (2012)


What if Ronald Reagan knew how to prevent Alzheimer by stimulating acupressure points? He might not be tortured by that disease, and he still wants to punch on a Donkey's face.

This humorous automata reflects my thought and expectation on the effectiveness of acupressure therapy.

Erectional Dysfunction (Napoleon) (2012)

This automata piece shows that the erectional dysfunction symptom could be cured by acupressure therapy.

If Napoleon had a knowledge on how to control his impotence, the history of world might be changed a lot.
