i seriously can't believe i missed this.
from july 30-august 3, 15 life sized "dinosaurs" took over madison square gardens,
including a t-rex, in an event bringing to life the bbc series walking with dinosaurs.
these guys look amazing.
this spring, i saw disney's lucky the dinosaur at the world science festival's street fair. lucky was a great robot, so lifelike, and it was great to see the way little kids reacted to a moving dinosaur.
but the bbc's dinosaurs were designed to be as realistic as possible - nothing like lucky - and with the exception of the human legs coming out the bottom of a few of them, from what i've heard the robots were incredible.
i'm so sad i didn't see it.
i love dinosaurs, and i really love robots.
