|Special Effect Table for Svein Flygari Johanson||2011|
Svein Flygari Johansen|
Am I making up what really happened? 12 November 2011 – 12 February 2012
Beaconsfields Gallery, Lambeth, London.
The Gallery is in a railway arch under the main railway line to Waterloo, Svein's idea was that as trains passed overhead a glass of milk on the table would vibrate and move as the table vibrated with the noise. However the glass had not to fall off the table!
Robotic-Leg for medical research into powered prosthetics,|
North Carolina A & T University
The human sized Robotic-Leg was made for the Shadow Robot Co. as part of a contract from North Carolina A & T University and my understanding is that it was to be used at North Carolina A & T University in a medical research program which would investigate myoelectric control of powered prosthetic legs. The program was to be overseen by Dr. Gary L. Lebby, a Research Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
Leg design and construction by David Buckley - 2005.
This video is the same as above except above it has been rotated to portrait format where most of the camera angles show the leg in its true orientation.
A video of the leg, size: 640x480 11.16Mb, is available for download from

|Animatronic Policeman - the Police Federation||August 2003|
The figure of a Policeman sat on a bed in an iron barred prison cell on the Police Federation's stand at the party Political Conferences 2003 where he was interviewed by MPs.
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.
See the video on the Policeman page.
|Animatronic Crofter - the Hootananny Celtic Heritage Centre, Inverness||June 2003|
The figure is of a nineteen fifties Crofter (Scottish farmer) talking about his harsh life and is installed in the Hootananny Celtic Heritage Centre in Inverness.
The skin of the head is silicone which allows for realistic facial movements and long life; and the controller, MP3 player and speakers are inside the body so the figure is self contained needing only a mains power socket. The Crofter speaks in Gaelic which is translated by a Tour Guide prior to an audio visual presentation.
The figure also has a moving arm with which he gestures at the end when he says 'let the ceilidh begin'.
