Disney created ultra expressive eyes printed in 3D
As realistic as they are, toys still have a disadvantage compared to their animated version: they are less expressive because by nature fixed. To remedy this problem, Disney Research and Carnegie Mellon have decided to tackle the most expressive part of the characters, their eyes. They worked closely on a new technology called Papillon that uses 3D printed fiber optics to create eyes capable of a multitude of expressions. These eyes of a new kind use the optical printing technology developed by Disney. Constructed from a bundle of 3D- printed optical fibers that bend and direct light to the surface of the character's eye, much like a video projection. A technology of the future that seems to be adaptable to many other sectors and which, again, relies on 3D printing .
