Remember a month ago when Disney’s Stickman was the best robotic stuntman technology they had? Good times. Things are about to get way more human and way more creepy. Now the company is working on a series of truly acrobatic, humanoid stunt robots with their Stuntronics project.
Disney is always pushing boundaries when it comes to their robots. That’s why the robots in their theme parks are so cool. Check out this video demonstration of Disney Research’s Stickman. It’s a robotic, and acrobatic stickperson that can do single and double backflips.
