animatronic lobster

I made the lobster mechanism while working for Artem. I had to make the tiny mechanism fit into a casting of a real lobster shell. The movement was: eyes swivel and come out on stalks, antennae hinge and bubbles to blow from the mouth and the whole thing had to be remotely operated at the bottom of an aquarium. For a TV advertisment.
The above are two flapping fish mecanisms for a TV ad. In the end we used a hand controlled version which really flapped about. For Lizard Studios
