Lucky, the Roving Robo-Raptor

Inventor: Walt Disney Imagineering

It took 21st century technology to create what nature had by the Triassic period: a free-range dinosaur. Built by Walt Disney Imagineering, this friendly fellow goes by the name Lucky. He's 9 ft. tall, and unlike his animatronic ancestors (which date to the singing birds and flowers in Disneyland's Enchanted Tiki Room that opened in 1963), Lucky wanders on his own, untethered by any wires and cables. He can laugh, sneeze, smile, yell and sign autographs, and once in a while, he gets the hiccups. What's his secret? His brain resides not in that cute little head of his but in the flower cart he's pulling behind him.
