Disney has developed robots that can pose just like superheroes in the air.

These advanced robots are part of Disney's Stickman project, which aims to develop high-tech animatronics that aren't just static and can be deployed in more scenarios.

Using laser guidance and built-in accelerometers, gyroscopes, and sensors, these robots are capable of adjusting their stance in mid-air and can nail superhero-like poses.

Disney hasn't said where these robots will be deployed, but they could used in their theme parks dressed up as famous Marvel characters.

They could also be used in movies to complete stunts that are deemed too dangerous for stuntmen and stuntwomen.

Take a look at them in the video above.
