Animatronic Obama Going to Disney World With High-Tech Style

President Obama (Obamatron) goes live in July as part of the newly revamped Hall of Presidents at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom. President Lincoln will read the full text of the Gettysburg Address and President George Washington will also have a speaking part in the new show.

Lincoln was the first life-sized human robot that Disney built and it was introduced at the Sate of Illinois Pavilion in the New York World's Fair in 1964. The original show was called Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln, which will re-open at Disneyland later this year. In that show Lincoln remains the only President.

Like I needed another reason to visit WDW.
