Tinkering seems to be a timeless hobby for boys regardless of age. In China’s Jinlin Province, 60 years old farmer Li Jingyang is one good example.

With some carpenter experiences in the village, farmer Li Jingyang enjoys watching science channel and programs about inventions. And inspired by those programs, he started building the electric wooden horse in 2008. The wooden horse is 1.4m high, 2m long with an imbedded storage battery. Its body and legs are able to move forward, backward, and turn.

After one and a half hour putting all the pieces together, the horse can take the carriage for a walk of honor around the yard. Li and his wife couldn’t be happier.

"At the moment the legs still need more work to be more flexible, all other functions are in place. When I finish experimenting, I will go apply for patent.” Says Li proudly.

Besides the horse, Li is also building a wooden bike and a massage chair.
