Crawley Creatures Ltd has created a number of display collection boxes, or automota, for various museums and tourist attractions worldwide.
Visitors gain much pleasure bringing an exhibit to life and the visitor centre benefits from the money generated.
The latest installation is an 8-axis animatronic baby Allosaurus hatching in a nest of eggs on show at the Oxford University Museum.
This coin-operated automaton performs a minute long show with sound and motion when coins are inserted. Video available here.
Motion activated, randomly activate or looped automata can also be made on request.
