Disney Has Created Robots That Match Human Emotions

Now I'm in the belief that robots are cool, but I totally understand being a little scared about robots taking over the world like in Terminator or Westworld and Disney might have taken a step towards that future.

Disney Research just revealed that they have developed a system that allows its animatronics to have a lifelike gaze for human-robot interactions which they said creates the "illusion of life."

This innovation in the robotic gaze could make animatronic characters even more lifelike, and allow them to slow down and speed up their blinking based on how the human they are reacting to is reacting to them.

You can learn more about the research below, but the next time you go to Disney World and see an alien from Avatar just know that they're staring back at you!
