Japanese Company Didn’t Learn a Thing From Jurassic Park, Wants to Make Robo-Dinos


Here’s the latest entry into the “you were so preoccupied with whether or not you could, you didn‘t stop to think if you should” file.

ON-ART Corp. in Japan has designed and created a set of robotic, life-size dinosaurs as part of a proof-of-concept for a park that would allow guests to interact with the massive, terrifying proto-chickens. They were unveiled as part of a show in Tokyo last Thursday, according to Reuters. They’re made of carbon-fiber and reach up to 26 feet high.

While showing off how realistic they are, they even had a moment during the “show” in which the T-Rex model bent down and ate its handler, ensuring that nobody left the demo with a clean pair of pants. It looked a lot like that scene in Jurassic Park where the lawyer gets eaten after running to the bathroom. Don’t you hate it when that happens?

Anyway, I think we need less Jurassic Parks and more… well, this:
