Disney Robot Plays Catch and Juggles

This experimental robot from Disney can play catch and juggle, sort of.

to Hardware |

This experimental humanoid robot from Disney Research uses motion tracking and Microsoft Kinect sensors to play catch with people, and if you play catch fast enough, it's kind of like juggling. But it's not since the robot is not doing the juggling alone. The idea of this research is to allow people to interact with robots at theme parks, hopefully not like the killer robots in The Simpsons episode Itchy and Scratchy Land.
