Imagineering’s Autonomous Walking Groot Robot Is Incredible

Unbeknownst to the public, Walt Disney Imagineering has been working on their robotics program behind closed doors. We all know Lucky the Dinosaur who roamed the streets of Disney’s Animal Kingdom years ago. More recently, they introduced a “stuntronic” which will make it’s debut at Disney California Adventure. Now, WDI has unveiled a Groot robot and it looks amazing.

Known as Project Kiwi, the team at Imagineering have been working on a smaller autonomous robot that can walk through the parks on its own. Not only can it walk, it can dance and even stand one one foot! While the figure isn’t quite ready for prime time, I think we will see a walking teenage Groot in the parks in the not-so-distant future. Check out the video below!
