Luxo Jr., the mascot of possibly the world's greatest film studio, Pixar, has been turned into an animatronic, real-life version that's remarkably smooth and lifelike. Well, as lifelike as a formerly-animated robot based on an old-school desk lamp can be.

This Luxo Jr. debuted a few days ago at Disney's Hollywood studios, as part of Pixar's "Living Character" exhibit that includes an inflatable version of the house from Up and a possibly dangerous saturation of Randy Newman songs. [via Boing Boing Gadgets]
