Greetings, I am still trying to gather any information on Mr. Alain Cabooter. I want to write a short article about him and his contributions to magic. I believe he died in the 1980's and he created an automaton by the name of Ioni. I would like to know whether he was a mechanic/magician. What else he created. Maybe where he was from and how he died. I have not had a great deal of success. I know he had a nephew by the name Jean-Claude. He was an 'antipodist' He juggled dolls on his feet. Any help would be truly appreciated!!!
