Realistic giant dinosaur puppets

By February 18, 2014 August 7th, 2017 No Comments

This super realistic dinosaur and its creator Kazuya Kanemaru were featured on the NHK World series  J-Innovators last year. It measures 6 meters long and stands 2.3m tall. Kazuya’s company developed the dinosaur so that it was precisely balanced and easy to operate. Although he doesn’t allow the NHK crew to see much of the inner workings of the dinosaur, the few glimpses we do get suggest that it’s operated using a fairly simple series of mechanical controls.

Special thanks to Megan for sending this in!
