Get Ready to Play Catch with Disney Parks Animatronics…It May Be Coming!

disney animatronics play catch

Animatronics in the Disney Parks typically do not allow for physical interaction and contact with people. However, catching and throwing back objects is one form of physical engagement that still maintains a safe distance between the animatronic character and participants. Using an animatronic robot, Disney Research Pittsburg developed a test bed for a throwing and catching game scenario. What do you think? Would you like to see this new technology implemented in the Disney parks?
