Disney Robots?!

These days, Disney is everywhere; your tv shows, movies, memes, and even oranges have some sort of connection with Disney. With all this Disney in your life, it only makes sense that they start automating their hold on our lives.

This is where the VertiGo comes into play. Designed by Disney Research and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, this minibot is able to drive on horizontal and vertical spaces, transitioning between the two automatically and seamlessly.

To achieve its vertical climb, the VertiGo uses two propeller blades that are angled away from the robot, pushing it against and up the wall. So next time you hear a robot buzzing outside your window, it might just be Disney, getting a feel for what type of princess movie you want next.
