most advanced interactive, human-shaped Animatronic Robot, this technology has
been produced as the first advanced Animatronic Robot capable of traveling and
appearing at business and promotional events throughout the globe, with minimal
set-up time, unparalleled reliability, and very low maintenance requirements.
The AnthroBot either delivers a programmed presentation or interacts live in real-time.
With the help of the IRI team of expert entertainers/operators, live presentations
are delivered by Tele-Presence. The male or female entertainer wears an Exo-Skeleton
Body-Sensor suit and Virtual-Reality helmet in a remote hidden location, also
manipulating numerous computer assisted programming, voice and special effects
devices. Form his/her remote location, the entertainer simply sees/hears the audience
inside their Virtual Reality Helmet through the eyes and ears of the Robot, then
interacts with that audience in real time by simply moving their own body and
speaking, while accessing an extensive library of computer generated musical,
voice and sound effects. On stage, the Robot instantly replicates the operator's
movements to deliver a flawless and mystifying performance. The AnthroBot is an
exhibit manager's dream. This new technology operates with the revolutionary new
"Aquadraulics" system, utilizing plain water instead of hydraulic fluid for simpler,
and more reliable, extremely low-maintenance performance. Fully self-contained,
the AnthroBot sets up in record time and is simply plugged into a regular 110V/220V
AC line. No air, water or hydraulic compressors or in-house lines need to be supplied.
AnthroBots are the first of their kind exclusively developed to perform live in
leisure/entertainment environments, trade shows, business meetings, etc. It has
long been known in the Animatronic Industry that such robots are so intricate
in their design and operation that they require intensive maintenance supervisions
and are expected to experience "down-time" on a regular basis. The AnthroBot has
revolutionized the industry by traveling with leading multinational corporations
across the US and to far out places such as Dubai, Germany, Turkey, China, Thailand,
Japan, Holland, Switzerland, etc. It has to date never missed a single performance
nor experienced any major technical difficulty. The entire system travels with
one technician, one show manager, and one entertainer. If you want to amaze your
audiences, attract much media attention, and command the attention of the most
jaded technical or business groups, the AnthroBot is the Robot of choice.
