NASA’s Buzz Lightyear Inspired Z-1 Spacesuit

It looks like there are absolutely no boundaries to Disney’s massive reach. NASA has just unveiled their brand new prototype suits, and these things bear a striking resemblance to Toy Story character Buzz Lightyear.
While we’re not quite sure that NASA was looking to take design inspiration from Pixar’s Toy Story movie, their Z-1 prototype space suit is sporting the same white and green colors that we have seen so many times on Buzz Lightyear. The suit is the first in a lineup of truly innovative offerings from NASA, which will include both the Z-2 and Z-3. The bearings in the joints making it easy to move in the pressurized suit, which is quite an accomplishment from the early day offerings. We’re not quite sure if the newer suits will sport the same similarities, but it certainly wouldn’t surprise us. [Via]
