    Mr. Potato Head may have less spiels than Roz. But the technology that makes it work is more advanced. I think he's using some form of face recognition technology.

    I always knew someone had to be manning the booth when the spiels were specific to people in certain rows. "You ladies in the back row, are those your real ears?" Haha

    Nope. Just a camera and person. It's funny to hear people react when I'm operating MPH. They think it's a fancy computer that recognizes their shirt color. Nope. Just a human with eyes.

    With long hair and a beard, I tend to get insulted in those attractions (Laugh Factory, the DCA ride).

    I honestly and genuinely don't like being insulted, so I don't go near anything with a Monsters Inc brand on it.

    I've always wondered about that too. Still working on Crush..............

    Crush is a live actor voicing things on the fly with what looks like a video game controller to control the animation of the character.

    In star tours where it takes your picture and correctly recognizes your gender, is that CM control or a computer recognizing gender?

    I haven't been on Star Tours myself though I don't remember the script referencing a rider's gender, it may or may not be CM controlled because I have seen videos where the "spy" is a typical Star Wars-y alien. I just assumed the camera broke.

    Yep like Flynnibus said its basically computer generated puppetry. It's really cool and high tech but it boils down to just a cm interacting with guests through a giant screen.

    Listening to you? Are there any prerecorded lines for responding to fat or "sl-ugly" jokes by guests? Or anything that could be said as a response to something said by guests?

    Funny how the simplest tricks work wonders of magic. At least Imagineering is developing characters with facial recognition technology. Destini at the D23 Expo back in 2010 is a great example of that. One of my favorite Roz bits is when she sings happy birthday. Crush is hatch day song is always hilarious as well.
