Disney’s New Technology for Realistic & Interactive Human-Robot Interactions

While we personally think this looks slightly creepy, it’s also incredibly impressive! New technology is constantly evolving, particularly in the realm of all things Disney. Disney is sharing the latest technology via a video to show how they are establishing realistic and interactive human-robot interactions.


As shared by DisneyResearchHub: “This video describes the development of a system for lifelike gaze in human-robot interactions using a humanoid animatronic bust. We present a general architecture that seeks not only to create gaze interactions from a technological standpoint, but also through the lens of character animation where the fidelity and believability of motion is paramount; that is we seek to create an interaction which demonstrates the illusion of life.”
