I posted this to another nerd blog I do but it fits in here:

The Swamp House: more pics of the process and final project by John Henry
I am in love with automatons. I want to know how they work so I can make my own weird creations. I have books and kits and papercraft kits so it's going to happen. Soon....
Watching this one is kind of hypnotic so I started to wonder how much this alligator was making based on the apparent speed of the gif. It makes ~$.125/second or ~$450 an hour. Normally you are supposed to take an average of multiple measurements but I don't think the gif will speed up at all.
@10 seconds I counted 5 quarters or $1.25/10seconds = ~$.125/second
$.125/1 sec * 60 sec/ 1 min * 60 min/1 hour =~$450/hour.
Not bad.
