Animatronic Policeman - the Police Federation August 2003
In partnership with Gems Display Figures.

The animatronic policeman was created for the British Police Federation to interact with politicians at the Party Political Conferences of 2003. The figure sat on a bed in an iron barred prison cell on the Police Federation's stand and Politicians were invited in to read out questions from one of two scripts each with 14 questions and the animatronic policeman gave relevant replies explaining that there is so much paperwork that they don't have enough time to police.
The skin of the head was silicone, which allowed for realistic facial movements; and the controller, MP3 player and speakers were inside the body, so the figure was self contained needing only a mains power socket.
