The 'VFXLAB,' a company that specializes in visual effects and boasts past clients such as Walt Disney, Universal Studios and Warner Brothers, worked to design an animatronic shark costume which it tested in the pool of a California hotel.
The end result is almost too real, or at least real enough to prevent anyone from wanting to go in the water. With glossy eyes, a sleek skin and an array of sharp teeth, the shark costume looks like its ready to star in a new Jaws movie.
In order to get the large structure to move throughout the water, the VFXLAB got a diver to climb inside. Once doing so, the diver was able to control the shark costume by holding onto it from underneath and then swimming.
