Through the topic titled Animatronics – Puppetry and Technology, I propose to examine mechatronic devices and robotised puppets, which are used more and more often not only in the arts and entertainment world, but also in medical technology, for treatment and therapeutic purposes. I seek answers to two questions, one, what new horizons are opened up with the integration of mechatronic devices into artistic creation, two, what are the potential advantages of scientists building on puppetry techniques and the thousands of years of practical experience inherent in them, during the development of mobile and companion robots.
