Watch The Most Complex Animatronic Human Ever Built Make Creepy Faces

Norman from Tested visits Garner Holt studios and gets to see how they make the best animatronic systems that are available today. Specifically, they focus on Abraham Lincoln. I found the interview section especially creepy because Norman and Garner Holt just have this normal conversation while Lincoln cycles through all these crazy expressions that, while impressive, are still firmly within the uncanny valley.

sometimes it switches rapidly from looking completely fake to super lifelike. Check out this expression of surprise that happens to line up perfectly with Norman. It is like Abraham just came to life!

There are great peeks into the studio sprinkled throughout, but the section where they show the internal mechanisms of Lincolns head was especially intriguing.

and just in case you were curious what hairless Lincoln would look like… there you go.

    Oh my god, it won’t stop making crazy faces. That whole interview was nuts. How could they just stand there and talk?
