We’ve featured the giant mechanical figures of Les machines de l’île, in Nantes, France, a few times before at Neatorama. These impressive behemoths are like something out of a science fiction film -by Jules Verne, of course. The animals are both technological wonders and works of art. Now we can take a look inside the place where they are built, stored, and used. And if you’re ever in the neighborhood, you can ride one yourself for less than ten euros! If not, take a ride with Tom Scott on a 40-foot-tall steampunk mechanical elephant in this video. It might be a little loud, and maybe a little wet, but you’ll never forget it.
