I'm going to use this Space to tell you a little bit about adventures of the robot so far. We have attended exhibitions, university lectures, club talks and festivals.

I am a passionate animatronic practitioner, at the end of the my masters degree via research in animatronic system studies. I have had a long standing love of animatronic characters growing up, from the first time I saw the film the Dark Crystal up to modern day character systems like the ones presented in the new Star Wars films.

I am very proud to say that I have interviewed some of the very best Hollywood special effects engineers and gained valuable insights into a very unique and often closed off industry. As far as I am aware I am the only academic who is taking animatronic theory as a serious in-depth study. I will share with you some of my findingings in the next log.

Best wishes.
