See Through the Eyes of Animatronic Penguins

Worldwide there are 17 species of penguins and then there are these, animatronic penguins, glorified spy cams that are capable of giving us a bird’s eye view of these winged yet flightless birds.

Certainly we have seen documentaries of penguins before, but not quite like this. With these spy cams, a group of documentarians were able to infiltrate into the penguin societies and capture more than 1,000 hours of footage for nearly a year, in the Falkland islands, Peru and also Antarctica.

It’s amazing just how realistic they are, they can move, walk and make noises practically like real penguins, robotic penguins that look and feel just like the real thing.
