Hmmm, is it me, or is Disney making a slight shift from just churning out cartoons (as well as new Star Wars movies) by working on technologically advanced ideas for future toys? Well, that seems to be the case as we had already looked at a project which allowed one to generate enough electricity to power an LED simply by rubbing against a special kind of paper. This time around, we have distortion-free curved displays that were developed by a 3D printer which is capable of creating fiber optic cables. Project Papillon was talked about in July earlier this year, but it seems that Disney’s designers have managed to work on a cute new eye for its real world toys which will offer a wider range of designs through the separation of the light source from the display screen itself – all without having to worry about distortion, of course.
You just have to watch the view above to experience it fully, where Disney’s demonstration left no doubt for the viewers that they are able to accurately emulate the eyes of their cartoon characters. Take for instance the pupils which are able to swap from normal shapes to other items such as dollar signs and hearts, which will respectively evoke the emotion of greed and romance.RELATED
