Animatronic Character & Control System
This is a project that was done for the Chicago Children's Museum Play it Safe exhibit. We designed and built Burt Burner, the animatronic oven mitt that teaches stove safety.
A technique was developed to store complex movements as part of the audio, so there is no computer, which reduces maintenance problems.
The project also included:
The Children's Museum is at Navy Pier, so there is always a good crowd. Opening day drew a lot of visitors and Burt Burner was a big hit.
