Disney unveils Jimmy, a new ultra-precise robot for telepresence

2016-05-13 // tech

Disney is now working on telepresence, or the art of being somewhere without being there, by unveiling Jimmy, a new high-precision robot! With its hybrid hydrostatic system, an adjustable camera, special controllers and a virtual reality headset, you can immerse yourself in the body of this robot and control every move with speed and precision. This new telepresence robot created by the Disney Research team is so precise, it is even possible to put a thread through a needle. I just love it.
