Hand play and ...

Like a catch ball, you can operate from a remote location and play with someone or communicate.

This robot adopts a fluid power transmission that transmits power using water and air flow and pressure. Fluid power transmission systems using air and water have been mainstream, but Disney succeeded in developing a new robot that increased work density by 600% compared to existing robots. The robot is equipped with a stereo camera, and the person who installed the VR headset can recognize the image the robot is watching in real time and can operate the robot.
