In 2016, after twelve months of work, Parmigiani Fleurier has brought back to life the double-barrel pistol and its songbird. This rare automaton was conceived and created, in all likelihood circa 1815, by the famous Frères Rochat with a design based on a cavalry pistol. When the hammer is cocked, pulling the trigger releases a hummingbird instead of the firearm's traditional sight. The bird performs a pirouette, opens its beak, turns its head, flaps its tail and wings, all of this while singing a lively tune, before disappearing as surprisingly as it appeared. (Watch the video.)
This is a video from the Norwegian television show Never Ever Do This At Home demonstrating what might happen if you decide to wash your wooden stairs with a combination of potassium iodide, hydrogen peroxide, soap, gasoline and fire.
