AnimatronicsScientists at Disney’s research labs in Zurich, Switzerland, not too long ago unveiled their newest method for making animatronics much more life-like: cloning an actual human face. By using motion capture technologies, scientists can make a 3-dimensional scan of a person’s face as the subject runs through several facial expressions like yawning and winking. They then catalog each and every detail of that person’s face—from facial hair to freckles—into a digital 3D rendering. That rendering is applied to craft a precise skin replica by injecting liquid silicone into a 3D mold and enabling it to remedy. This ‘mask’ adheres to a motorized metal and plastic skull outfitted with points that show precisely exactly where the skin must be placed.

In fact, engineering – and the kind of thought processes and expertise that underpin it – has often been with us from the earliest human evolution. Chipping at a flint to make a spearhead is a primitive form of engineering, as well. I was virtually tempted to say that it could be the ‘one thing’ that separates us from the other animals that we have evolved alongside on this planet but then I remembered that chimpanzees and crows are each known to engineer and use easy tools in the wild.
