@jlpedigo For those of you who don’t know Joe Pedigo: He has been involved with themedattraction from the very beginning! And animatronics enthusiast from Texas, we love his insights and passion. Joe, what have you been up to lately?
I founded Marilyn Systems in 2004 to provide control systems and devices for themed entertainment. We’ve played a part in a number of projects from museum interactives to dark rides. Retail-based entertainment has also kept us busy supplying shooting gallery targeting systems to Bass Pro Shops for the past 15 years. We are currently focused on bolstering our product line starting with the DAR and Mini-DAR audio players.
I’m still a huge fan of animatronics old and new and always enjoy getting to work (and/or just tinker) with them whenever I can.
