Rapitypes has an enviable pedigree in all the disciplines needed to provide clients with engaging physical devices or working sets. Our knowledge of robust yet simple electronic systems, fabrication and quick build structures, surface cladding and decoration and complete functioning systems (for animatronics) has been gained from two decades in the rough and tumble of product development, toy design/build and special purpose machinery construction. Our 20,000 square feet of construction and assembly space can be brought to bear on a large assignment.
