James McKeown senior prop maker on Prometheus at Pinewood Studios worked on all aspects of the medical bay's MedPod (720i) and RT01 ATV's seating and interior. Interfaces (UIs) in filming as Shaw was programming operations were projected in real time and made by Territory Studios and Inventing Interactive this also included the in pod's internal displays. The VFX of the automated surgery in the MedPod was produced by Weta Digital who created the CGI robotic arms which were filmed with both prosthetic and CGI body parts, this included the final surgical procedure with an automated prop of the small Trilobite.
