Wow, you're right, Nick... they totally appropriated the Pianocorder technology and adapted it to run the animatronic show. I never knew this. Somewhere, someone must have the original puppeteering console to record the motion for the tapes - probably a Pianocorder record board and keyboard switch array, modified for more intuitive layout of the gesture controls. I'll have to mention this to Merlyn Morgan, one of the original Marantz engineers. I'm curious whether they knew at the time that their technology was being used this way!
