Animatronics are mechatronic puppets, primarily used in the entertainment industry, to provide an impression of an animated character or creature. Before the term 'animatronics' came into use, they were usually referred to as robots. Since then, robots have become known as more practical programmable machines that do not necessarily resemble living creatures. Robots and other artificial beings designed to convincingly resemble humans are known as androids.
