Disney developing emotive 3D-printed eyes for robots
Disney Research has detailed a new technology that will allow robots to have expressive eyes. Based on the 3D printing tech Disney announced last year, Papillon uses bundles of printed optical fibers to guide light. By hooking the output end of the bundle up to a robot’s eye, researchers were able to project an image from the receiving end of the bundle and have it appear at the other end.
