The Hockey Player automaton uses gears and levers to make the illusion of a hockey player scoring a goal. The automaton was constructed with a bicycle chain and hand-made gears and pinwheels. The hockey player's swing was coordinated with the movement of the puck via the timing incorporated into the automaton.
