Treasure Chest - A Pirate Automaton

Hi, let me introduce you my project. 

Everybody knows about treasure islands, with some hidden treasure chest, buried by some dangerous pirate.. well, my idea was to put the island and the pirates inside the chest!

I built this pirate-like chest, that opens up and reveals a micro Caribbean Sea, where a mighty little ship is rocking on the waves, with an island on the background. 

The automaton reproduces the movement of the waves and the ship, going up and down; it can be activated by a crank or by Power Functions motor.

I really hope you like it as I do!

I will soon add a video of the automaton moving.
