Muppets Roaming Disneyland
People walking around in giant felt suits will seem pretty lame if Disney's latest experiment pans out. They've got small Muppet robots roaming the parks of Disneyland, talking to people, interacting, commenting on their clothes and so on. (The puppets are remotely operated by puppeteers in another location far away.) Sounds very cool. But as an aside, I hate it when major websites can't include video with the same ease of use as YouTube. Both Gawker and the LATimes had stories with added video which I tried to play but could never get to work. That NEVER happens at YouTube. So if you can see the Muppets actually scooting around and talking to people, you're doing better than me.
