Two robotic dinosaurs awaiting completion in the workshops of the California-based company Dinamation International. The dinosaurs are sent out in travelling displays to museums around the world. Each dinosaur is composed of a robotic metal skeleton covered by rigid fibre-glass plates, over which is laid a flexible skin of urethane foam. The plates & skin are sculpted & painted to make the dinosaurs appear as realistic as possible. The creatures' joints are operated by compressed air and the movements controlled by computer.
