Disney Developing Humanoid Robots 

By Holly


Ready to interact with robots at Disney World? It could happen sooner than you think.

Disney took out a patent for a “humanoid” robot that can act as an animated character and interact with guests. Check out the soft-body design they’ve registered with the US patent office:

Included in the patent filing, a diagram of a robot’s upper body. (U.S. Patent Office)

So….we got cute looking squishy robots hugging our kids now? Are we cool with that? Theoretically it would be like a smaller version of Baymax, a character from Disney’s Big Hero 6. Get more details HERE!

Whatcha think??
