Move over Baymax, Disney’s newest robot is here. Meet iCan, a new interactive robot in Tomorrowland in Walt Disney World.
Inside the Magic managed to film a video of this new Disney ‘bot, who looks somewhat like a cross between Gizmoduck and Robocop, with a bit of Daft Punk thrown in for good measure.
iCan seems to be an upgrade of PUSH the Talking Trash Can, a fan favorite who roamed Tomorrowland for many years. PUSH was retired in 2014, allegedly due to a contract dispute with its creator.
The new humanoid robot might be a trial run of sorts for Star Wars Land. When the Hollywood Studios expansion opens in 2019, we might get to interact with a “real life” C-3pO, a battle droid, or even some new creations.
Catch iCan if you can in Tomorrowland in the Magic Kingdom!
