The robots of Electric Circus look truly lifelike and are moved by remote control: a technique borrowed from the film-industry known as "animatronics", now mostly replaced by computer-animation.
The use of animatronics in theatre and street performances is not done very often and produces fascinating interactions.
Beside this technique, Electric Circus has been experimenting with something new; replacing the remote control by intuitive programming.
The wires of the puppet were previously replaced by the waves of radio control, now the puppets are completely free from the operator and move independently !
In fact they are only real robots now, capable to respond autonomously.
