    Disney robotics research

    The following article is from a technical magazine (though the article itself isn't especially technical). Thought it might be of interest to the community.

    It's way over my head but very cool!
    Sometimes all you need is a reminder that out there lies a better place... a better world... a Walt Disney World.

    Did you happen to watch the video? At first I thought the segments of the robots in action were simulated, as in pixels on a screen. But towards the end, to demonstrate the algorithm's ability to restore the shape after the robots have been scrambled, someone walks into the frame and moves them around, making it clear that you were watching robots move themselves around the whole time.
