voodoo rig
 n.— «The large dinosaurs glide along, attached to low-slung go-carts run by jockey-size drivers. A second operator in a control booth uses a “voodoo rig”—a device that fits along the operator’s arm—to move a dinosaur’s body, head and tail, while a third person manipulates the eyes, jaws and sounds.» —“Making a Thundering Comeback After 65 Million Years” by Patricia Cohen New York Times Oct. 3, 2007.
