The robot uprising has begun, and it’s adorable.

DisneyParks Blog’s Thomas Smith reported Thursday on a small bit of machinery aptly named Beachbot.

Now this doesn’t mean the robot is designed to get your back when you need some sunscreen or haul your cooler across the expanse of the beach—although both would be nice.

This little novelty is all about artistic endeavors.

Smith explains what may one day entertain you at a Disney resort: “An autonomous ‘entertainment’ robot that can create large scale sand art called Beachbot recently visited Walt Disney World Resort and amazed guests at Disney’s Contemporary Resort by drawing a giant portrait of Walt Disney.”

Enjoy Beachbot’s latest modern art creation formed in Orlando, Florida:

You might be wondering why you would employ a robot at various resorts around the world.

Well, for one, you must be fun at parties. Second, Disney Research Zurich’s Paul Beardsley offers the singular joy afforded by Beachbot.

Beardsley states, via Smith: “This is a new kind of area really, which is entertainment robots – that’s what Beachbot is. It could be that you go to your local beach and look over and you see – presto, there’s a drawing being made by a robot.”

The joy of visiting any number of Disney attractions is that no amount of attention to detail is spared.

From wonderfully elaborate rides and attractions to simply novel eateries and diners, Disney tries to infuse every portion of its real estate with enjoyable entertainment.

Well, that sentiment seems to be slowly playing out on its beaches, with cool drawings like the one in the video.

We have no idea if Walt Disney ever imagined a robot would one day draw his likeness on a wide swath of sand, but we are inclined to believe he would have enjoyed the sight immensely.
