Do you have $350k that you’re just itching to spend? If so, The 20 Foot Animatronic Triceratops could be yours. This is the same motion-sensing 20′ Triceratops that your see at museums all over the country. This is a finely crafted machine with no details forgotten.

This could be one large and intimidating watch dog for your house.
The 20 Foot Animatronic Triceratops
Featured at museums nationwide as part of a traveling exhibit, this is the motion-sensing, 20′ long animatronic triceratops that responds to onlookers with lifelike reactions and fortissimo bellowing. Motion-activated cameras installed into each eye work in unison with customized interactive software that enables the Cretaceous creature to recognize multiple subjects’ facial features. Once identified, subjects’ tracked movements trigger a set of responses: it sways its tri-horned head right, left, up, and down, stomps and scuffs its right forelimb, and opens its jaws while growling–all powered by digitally controlled servos and silent, pneumatic air-activated cams. Its exterior is crafted by professional sculptors from polyurethane foam and textured silicone over a steel and aluminum frame, replicating the beast’s massive horned frill, powerful hindquarters, and tapered tail with convincing realism. The rumbles that issue from a hidden 1,000-watt speaker are based on paleontological approximations of what sounds the original 67 million year-old saurian might have vocalized. 20′ L x 4′ 7″ W x 8′ 6″ H. (1,345 lbs.)
