Before continuing you work on your own animatronic, check out this short video from the Travel Channel about Disney’s Animatronics.

This provides some information in Disney’s role in animatronics, as well as a lot of examples from both early on in animatronics to today, showing both what they look like under the hood with a studio that can are not as limited in funding to produce the effects they are looking to achieve.

Post answers to the following questions on your blog:

1- Why did Disney initially seek developing animatronics?

2- What was significant about the development of the A100 over the A1 figures?

3- How was Disney able to remove all bugs or errors from their animatronics? Explain.

 

There are a lot of really cool videos out there on animatronics. Here’s one of the Lion in Jumanji, and here’s the T-Rex from Jurassic Park.
