There are many potential uses for realistic, artificial animals. Some of these uses include:
- Education and research: Artificial animals can be used to teach people about different species of animals and their behavior. They can also be used in research to study animal physiology, ecology, and evolution. This photo shows a green sea turtle baby that was sculpted at the direction of biologists working for the NOAA. This is just one of four or five different sea turtle offerings available to educators today.
- Entertainment: Artificial animals can be used in movies, television shows, and video games to create realistic and engaging visuals. They can also be used in theme parks and other entertainment venues to provide visitors with a unique and memorable experience. Check out highlights from Animal Makers’ long entertainment history.
- Therapy: Artificial animals can be used to provide companionship and support to people who are lonely, isolated, or grieving. They can also be used to help people with disabilities learn new skills and develop social relationships.
- Security: Artificial animals can be used to deter crime and protect people and property. They can also be used to monitor areas for potential threats.
- Pets: Artificial animals can be used as a substitute for real pets for people who are allergic to animals, cannot afford to care for a pet, or live in a situation where they cannot have a pet.
As artificial intelligence and robotics continue to develop, it is likely that the potential uses for realistic, artificial animals will continue to grow. These animals could have a significant impact on our lives in many different ways.
