  1. Animatronics combines electronics and robotics to create mechanized puppets that look and move like real creatures. Probably the most famous animatronic puppets are the giant dinosaurs created for the "Jurassic Park" series, including the spinosaurus, an animatronic dinosaur nearly the size of a bus built for the latest movie in the series, "Jurassic Park III."
