Alvaro Villa translated his boyhood love of electronics into AVG, an animatronics company he founded in the Los Angeles, California, area. Today he takes great pleasure in showing off animatronic figures like the Crypt Keeper or Little Man, the hip figure (with Villa) that "represents" the company at trade shows. Wearing a baseball cap and sneakers, it tirelessly delivers a humorous prerecorded spiel that is synchronized with a video on a screen behind it. From the book Robo sapiens: Evolution of a New Species, page 208.
