Specialists from Disney, specializing in the field of robotics, are already well known for their interesting work, designed primarily to “revitalize” the company's theme parks. However, this is not the only activity of the company; not so long ago, specialists from Disney Imagineering R & D created and demonstrated a robot stuntman who is able to perform tricks that are too dangerous or even beyond the power of living stunt people.

The creation of stuntbots is a division of a company called Stuntronics. Their first robot has a humanoid appearance and is capable of performing dizzying stunts that require careful calculation and precise coordination of movements. In the video below, you can see how this robot “shoots” into the air with a catapult, how it aligns its trajectory and portrays one of the superheroes flying through the air.Such capabilities are provided to the robot by accelerometers, laser gyroscopes and, of course, an onboard computer with appropriate software.

In addition to the dizzying stunts that the stunt robot is capable of performing, he may surprise others with the speed of his development, which is a merit of Disney specialists. Only in May of this year, the company presented to the public the predecessor of the Stuntronic robot, the Stickman robot, which was just a combination of sensors, actuators and structural elements, and which didn’t look like a human superhero.

And in conclusion, it should be noted that in modern cinema, the use of computer graphics will still be a cheaper option of setting "impossible" tricks. But it is likely that there will be a director who will want to use both computer graphics and tricks performed by stunt robots, which will lead to incredible and amazing special effects.
