Hey all, just here to share another interesting paper with a great accompanying video. The minds at Disney Research are constantly working to create better, more realistic characters for animatronics, and as technology advances, more and more animatronics are becoming purpose-built robots!
The paper published by Disney Research here show impressive results with their work, which details an attempt to create robot motions as close as possible to traditional animations.
Which is your favorite character? I’m torn between the boxer or drummer robots.
