NASAs Buzz Lightyear Inspired Z-1 SpacesuitIt 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]
