Animatronics is mainly the combined usage of electronics and robotics which helps to create machines that seem to animate rather than robotic.In other words  it is a mechanised puppet that can be preprogrammed or remotely controlled.It is basically used in movie-making,museums,parks and provides other forms of entertainment.It is not a simulation of reality but are physical objects moving in front of the camera. Animatronics is basically used in situations where a creature does not exist or when the action to be done is too risky or costly to use real animals or actors.These physical objects are controlled by using either computer control or human control and the movements are obtained by using electric motors,hydraulic cylinders,cable mechanisms etc. Animatronics played a vital role in cinematic history before digital effects came into practice.The technology behind animatronics is becoming more advanced nowadays making the puppets loooking more realistic with the wide use of electronics.
