New iCan Interactive Robot Debuts in Tomorrowland


Yesterday Disney introduced a new "interactive robot" called iCan in Tomorrowland. The robot is staffed by a cast member and features video screens on his chest and forearm. The robot movesaround on wheels and will talk with guests.

The voice is slightly digitized, but otherwise iCan does not appear to have scripted responses like Mickey, instead he is capable of normal interaction.

It is unknown if this is a limited engagement test or if iCan will be a permanent addition to Tomorrowland.
