Disney is developing a robot that can interact with visitors at its theme parks. Throw a ball, he catches it. If he doesn’t catch it, he uses body language to acknowledge the fact.

Disneyland Paris might be a getting a ‘Star Wars Land’ park in 2015

When it first opened in 1992, Disneyland Paris was a bit of a joke and was a money pit of a project for Disney for a while. By now, things have picked up and Disneyland Paris is doing pretty well, and in 2015, they’ll be getting a Star Wars Land park.
