Fake Taxidermy Part VIII

11 Robotic Hunting Trophies

— February 29, 2008 — Tech
It seems the fascination with animal heads on the walls isn't letting up. These robotic animal head wall mounts make this our eighth fake taxidermy feature. We've seen classy antler chandeliers, and we've seen very tacky joke pieces. These are by far the most interaction of the bunch.

Motion sensors inside the Robotic Animal Heads allow the I-Cybie robots to come to life, expressing aggressive noises and actions.

The robotic hunting trophy intruder alerts are made by France Cadet. The species include North Africa Deer, Impala, Antelope, Moose, Asian Rhinoceros, Lion, Leopard, Tiger, Bobcat, Burchell Zebra and African Warthog.

"When a viewer is in front of this collection of robot species, the trophies are inactive," the company explains. "Their eyes are turned off, their head held high are still. But when a viewer approaches, the robots start to react. They turn their heads in his direction, their eyes light up, their mouths half-open they start growling.

"The robots are able to eye the nearby person and turn their head in his direction. If we come closer the robot suddenly starts to growl and then it becomes more and more aggressive if we are too close.

"When a person will walk fast facing this wall of trophies, a chain reaction will emerge such as a wave of protestation following his walk. The robots will remain calm when the room will be quiet or when people will stop moving."

That's pretty creepy...

"Depending on the public activity the robots will be more or less active and aggressive because it is the point, showing their anger because they have been tracked, chased, killed cut up and exhibited as decorative icons."

Check out the other 7 fake trophies here:
