Adam Savage visits Wētā Workshop's electronics lab where Richard Taylor walks him through the design and prototyping of the larger-than-life animatronic character visitors meet in the Wētā Workshop Unleashed experience. Adam goes hands-on in controlling the lively facial expressions of this robot and learns how this animatronic is a different engineering challenge than the ones created for film.
