Teaser Trailer: Tim Burtons Dumbo

Disney hat sich kein Geringeren als Tim Burton ins Boot geholt und ihn den Disney-Klassiker Dumbo neu auflegen lassen. Ich denke, den sollte man gesehen haben.

From Disney and visionary director Tim Burton, the all-new grand live-action adventure “Dumbo” expands on the beloved classic story where differences are celebrated, family is cherished and dreams take flight. Circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) enlists former star Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell) and his children Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins) to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus. But when they discover that Dumbo can fly, the circus makes an incredible comeback, attracting persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton), who recruits the peculiar pachyderm for his newest, larger-than-life entertainment venture, Dreamland. Dumbo soars to new heights alongside a charming and spectacular aerial artist, Colette Marchant (Eva Green), until Holt learns that beneath its shiny veneer, Dreamland is full of dark secrets.

Ein Roboter, der auf Wänden fahren kann: VertiGo

Disney hat zusammen mit dem ETH Zürich (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology) einen kleinen, fahrenden Roboter entwickelt, der auch auf Wänden, scheinbar mühelos, fahren kann: den VertiGo. Möglich gemacht wird das über zwei neigbare Propeller, die für die nötige Wandhaftung sorgen. Was Disney mit dem Ding will, ist bisher nicht bekannt.

“About why Disney is interested in this area, I am not able to say specifics as you can understand,“ Disney Research scientist Paul Beardsley told IEEE Spectrum. „But just speaking in general, one can imagine that robots with lighting effects could be useful for entertainment effects or for wall games. This also relates to the question of why the ground-wall transition is useful. If you have to manually place a robot on a wall at the start of a deployment, and manually remove it at the end, then that’s taking manpower and it’s not flexible. If the robot can make those transitions automatically, then you are a step in the direction of autonomous deployment, and that makes the technology more powerful. We are motivated by making a practical device, so it is real-world feedback and challenges that drive our work.”
