Giant Free-walking-Audio-animatronic T-Rex video!

Remember WDI "Lucky the dinosaur" that California Adventure guests were the first to discover last year? Everybody loved him, no? And it's true that the Imagineers did a great work on their new two-legs AA baby.
But there was just a problem. Remember this carriage that Lucky was linked to?...supposedly there to hide the electric batteries - and, probably too, to help Lucky in its balance...

Well, the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology in Japan has created some incredible new robot- animatronic dinosaurs that can actually walk around.
And with nothing behind them.

And the japanese have began by the one we'll all love to see walking alone in the streets: a giant T-Rex that can walk and turn by itself ! The other movements are not that bad, too, although they still can be improved. But this part should be the easy one for WDI.
