Engineering Eye Candy: Disney brings puppets to life

Okay. These mechanical puppets are seriously cool. I suggest fwd'ing the video to 4:25 to check out the T-rex (though the whole video is really worth the watch). 

Disney researchers have created a system to create geared figures that look incredibly life-like. Even better: this system allows for pupetteers, lego lovers, and clockwork enthusiasts to build geared robots using 3D printings and metal rods.

What would you bring to life? I have a sneaky suspicion our engineers could brainstorm, tool, and give Disney a run for their money. (Just kidding. Maybe.)
