Kinetic Metal Wire Characters Created by Disney Research

Disney Research developed new techniques to create kinetic wire characters. The figures are truly impressive and the whole process can be seen in the video above.

Wires are used as the skeleton for the figures and the bending of the wire is done in just a few minutes using CNC wire benders, whereby the D.I.Wire Pro is used. After bending, the wires are assembled using screws or connectors.
