Disney is Creating Expressive 3D Printed Eyes for Robots and Toys

[titlle]

The eyes definitely have it. From the stare to the come-hither look, they are the most expressive parts of our anatomy. Now, Disney will be mass producing toys that have highly expressive eyes that are so animated they almost seem life-like. The technology used for this operation is termed Papillion. It prints eyes onto android robots and other digital toys. In the future all plastic dolls will vanish and robot dolls will take their place. This is a pointer towards the production of lively eyes.

They will register every emotion underneath the sun. Disney has finally gone animatronic. The eyes are 3D printed optical fibers which relay images from the sensors to their surface. They are formed layer by layer by employing see-through photopolymers. These are tessellated with translucent filler material.

The Papillion technology is very complex and based on Fibonacci volutes and Voronoi tiles. What that means is that the eyes can transform into any visual emotional state that befits the occasion. And these are handled by sensations from within the characters. We’ve all heard of the dead soul look of robots. Well, that is all about to change with Papillion. The 3D eyes are basically small screens with television-like abilities. And the beautiful thing is that they will display a range of emotions from sadness to happiness to rage.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
