Eddo Stern - buttons

I just wanted to show you this artist Eddo Stern and these tiny pneumatic (? I'm not sure, I have to find a place that sells these) button pushers. Here he has them playing through a us army simulation. Cool stuff. I love that a machine has taken over a training simulation. Isn't that what it was designed for? I have to say it took me a while to get into video games relatively, I hated repetitively playing mario levels over and over, just any game that was pushing buttons in the right sequence...all about timing. Just on that level I appreciate this machine taking over and watching it physically 'play' the game.
