    Would you rather have a camera that's a cross between Woody Allen and Ira Glass? I'm not sure that I could endure the monologue.

    The concept comes from the mechanical chess "automaton" which featured a mechanical man who played a game of chess. It was actually operated by a person out of sight, like a dwarf or midget stuffed under the chess table.
