For that, they visited many places of recycling machinery station and even NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory to study robots. WALL-E eyes were inspired by the binocular. The animators didn’t create a mouth, elbows, nose and other body parts to the robots to make them look more machine like.The animators and the makers of this 3D animation movie watched a Keaton and Charlie Chaplin film everyday for a year, to analyze how to create emotions in robots with expressions.
