The future of Animatronics?

Postby robbalvey » Wed Mar 19, 2008 8:51 pm

For years I know that Disney was working on a "self contained" animatronic, and that project ended up being Lucky the Dinosaur. Impressive, sure, I guess, but nowhere NEAR as impressive as what this thing can do:

You'll either see this coming soon at a theme park near you...or a war zone near you!

Is it just me or is that kinda scary?

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

I think the war zone comment is more likely. That looks to me like Terminator taking baby steps. The end is near! The end is near!

Maybe it was the noise or the realistic-nature of it but it freaked me out! Looks cool but I wouldn't wanna be stuck in a room with it.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Holy mackerel. I'm not sure how to feel about it. It's cool, creepy, useful, remarkable.

It will be interesting to see how it develops.
