The Sarcos Pirate

It’s a little early for the Video of The Week, but this was so neat I had to link to it today. It’s a little bit old (dated 1999 on the video), but this example of a replacement audio-animatronic for the Captain in the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction moves wonderfully. Plus you get to see the figure with costume and without. To see more great audio-animatronic and robotics explore the rest of the Sarcos website.

    I believe that would be the auctioneer, but WOW! What movement!

    Almost seems like a fake with a human doing the movement. If not for the reveal, I would assume it was a human in a suit.
