SECRET LIFE OF PETS Blueray ® Combo pack!

 

In their fifth fully animated feature-film collaboration, Illumination Entertainment and Universal Pictures present The Secret Life of Pets, a comedy about the lives our pets lead when we leave for work or school. Max, voiced by Louis C.K., is a loyal terrier living a perfectly happy existence until his owner, Katie (Ellie Kemper) brings home Duke (Eric Stonestreet) a big, boisterous mutt she finds at the shelter. When Max and his unruly new “roommate” slip away from their dog-walker, they find themselves lost in the urban jungle of New York City. In an attempt to stay ahead of animal control and a rebel band of abandoned pets led by an unhinged bunny named Snowball (Kevin Hart), they put aside their differences to survive the epic journey back home.

Meet Baxter, PARO®, ROBOTIS-OP, and RHex—just some of the innovative robots that are meeting human needs from the everyday to the EPIC in Robot Revolution, a brand new exhibit at the Franklin Institute in Phladelphia.                                          

From self-driving cars to surgical assistance, from scientific research to search and rescue missions—robots are here to help ease and improve our lives.  Robot Revolution comes to life with a collection of 40 cutting-edge robots curated from some of the most innovative global robotics companies and universities, more than half of which can be interacted with or operated.

The exhibit offers four sections dedicated to robotic smarts, skills, cooperation and locomotion.
A small sample of what visitors can do inside Robot Revolution include:
  Step inside a simulated self-driving Google Car to experience a virtual drive and learn how autonomous vehicles operate using LiDAR sensors.
  Cheer from the sidelines as teams of soccer ‘bots compete in an ultimate game of autonomy.
  Maneuver Rhex, the all-terrain crawling robot, developed locally by the University of Pennsylvania.
  Face off with Baxter, a tic-tac-toe-playing ‘bot.

  Feel PARO®, a therapeutic baby seal robot that reacts to your touch, and learn the ways this robot is used to help the emotional and physical health of medical patients.
  Program a robotic arm.
  See experienced robot specialists adjusting sensors, wires and batteries on the robots in the RobotGarage, an open tech space within the exhibit.
