February 13, 1988 – The Expo Robotics Demonstration Opens in Epcot


“The intricate movements of the robotic arms amazingly performed various programmed tricks.”

On February 13, 1988, the Expo Robotics demonstration opened in Epcot’s Communicore West area. Expo Robotics was an expansion of the already popular Bird and the Robot exhibit in World of Motion’s Transcenter. The demonstration featured several large robotic arms that performed a variety of programmed tricks, including drawing faces of guests and airbrushing Disney characters on t-shirts that were eventually sold. The demonstration also featured lively circus music to create the jolly atmosphere. The attraction eventually closed on October 3, 1993.
