Providing animatronic control systems and audio repeaters to haunted attractions, amusement parks, museums, miniature golf courses, and hobbyists for 10 years.
Building on a background in industrial automation and a love of animatronics, we created the original APC16 in 2003. This first system was designed to retrofit the control system on some former showbiz pizza robots. After seeing how easy the first prototype was to program (with nothing more than a joystick attached to a computer), friends suggested we should offer it commercially, and so, in 2004, HauntBots was born.
The original goals were:
- High output count.
- Real Time Programming
- Graphical Programming
- Hardware Expansion Capabilities
- Software Upgrade Capabilities
Since that first system we've expanded the product line with controllers ranging from 3 to 24 outputs, a line of CD quality audio repeaters, various expansion modules such as DMX and the most rugged extruded aluminum enclosure we could find.
The list of products, and enhancements continues to grow driven largely by suggestions from our customers.
More importantly, even though we continue to add features, we strive to keep our software as simple to use as possible.
HauntBots provides the tools to take the "programming" out of animatronics, leaving you more time to create.
HauntBots products are
