History of the machines

Animated machines, do you have a soul?

They were born from our imagination or that of our clients, they were the fruit of our work, they generated a lot of stress and many satisfactions, they have not all become myths like Belphégor but have sometimes been forgotten. Whether we built them or operated them, these machines mark the memories and the great moments of our history.
