When the principal of the elementary school where Paul Spooner's son attends retires, he thought about making some automata and giving it as a gift, and he tried to use the principal's hobby as a motif. After all, I realized that the principal's hobbies were swimming and yoga, and yoga was not suitable for automata, so he chose swimming. The appearance of practicing crawl on a chair invites the viewer to laugh. It's a very simple mechanism, but it shows full-scale movements such as scratching both hands and fluttering the legs and raising the face firmly for breathing.
