An abbreviated term originally coined by Walt Disney as "Audio-Animatronics" ( used to describe his mechanized characters ) ,can actually be seen in various forms as far back as Leonardo-Da-Vinci's Automata Lion ,( theoretically built to present lillies to the King of France during one of his Visits ),and has now developed as a career which may require combined talent in Mechanical Engineering , Sculpting / Casting , Control Technologies ,
Electrical / Electronic , Airbrushing , Radio-Control.
Long before appeared, animatronics were making cinematic history. The scare generated by the coming out of the water in "Jaws" and the tender otherworldliness of "E.T." were its outcomes. The Jurassic Park series combined digital effects with animatronics.
It is possible for us to build our own animatronics by making use of ready-made animatronic kits provided by companies such as Mister Computers.

Eye tracking has been actively discussed by technology enthusiasts throughout these years, but it’s really challenging to implement. But Eye Tribe actually did this. Eye tracking can be used in a wide variety of applications typically categorized as active or passive. Active applications involve device control, for example aiming in games, eye activated login or hands-free typing. Passive applications include performance analysis of design, layout and advertising. Other examples are vehicle safety, medical diagnostics and academic research.They successfully created the technology to allow you to control your tablet, play flight simulator, and even slice fruits in Fruit Ninja only with your eye movements.
