Disney Creates Wall Crawler (And It’s Not A Superhero)

        Disney research released a new video showing off their most recent project: a robot that can seamlessly transition between driving horizontally on the ground to vertically up and over walls. The robot uses propellers in tandem with it’s wheels to create the vertical thrust needed to move straight up and over walls. Not gonna lie, the video is pretty impressive. There are many obvious applications where this robot will be useful, both in the entertainment industry and just in robotics in general. Good to see that there is still some Disney “magic” being pumped out of a company that has long been known for it’s forward thinking and innovations in the effects and robotics departments.
