Disney Research and ETH Zürich teamed up to create a fun new robot called the Beachbot. From the introductory video it is clear this is the perfect new tool to be used at the beaches at the Disney Parks and Resorts.
The Beachbot can create intricate drawings in the sand - ranging from giant Mickey Mouse faces to Nemo from 'Finding Nemo'!
There is also a feature where artists can use a remote control to draw on the sand with the Beachbot, rather than the robot using a pre-programmed design.
The Beachbot uses "balloon wheels" to travel over the sand without leaving any marks unless it is drawing a picture. What a fabulous invention! We can't wait to see it in action at the Disney Resorts in the future!
