ObamaBot added to robot presidents exhibit

Walt Disney World just modernized its Hall of Presidents attraction, adding a new likeness of our current president, Barack Obama. Take a look at the video above and see if you think it captures his essence. We're thinking it looks pretty good, but does not quite make the trip across that proverbial "Uncanny Valley."

Not only did they add Barack Obama to the collection of 42 other presidents (remember, Grover Cleveland counts as two presidencies), but the Disney "imagineers" upgraded the exhibit with digital sound, projection and lighting.

We've seen the previous version of the Hall of Presidents, and although the robots move a bit slowly to be perfectly realistic, it's still an impressive tableau. Here's a video of President Obama recording the audio track for this new version:
