Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

The Jim Henson Company won a technical Oscar for this animatronic design system. It had 24 servos motors in the turtle head controlled in real time by a complex mit and joy stick. It was quite a challenge to perform but worked great until a taxi or police car passed by using the same radio frequency.
