Gustav Hoegen's animatronic FX show reel is awesome

Oh, and robots will one day enslave the human race

File this under your cross-index for both awesome and creepy. Gustav Hoegen is the animatronic artist responsible for some pretty stunning creations from films such as Prometheus, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, and so many others. The only way to really sum up the man's work is awesome. There are animatronic creatures here that come dangerously close to replicating the real thing. Too close, in fact. So if you have a crippling fear of robotics, you may want to pass this one over. Otherwise, enjoy the reel and accept humanity's fate with open arms.
