Apple helps Pixar out with WALL•E

Apple helps Pixar out with WALL•E
DB8E0516-A5A1-476C-B70E-ADC16AA9AF6A.jpgI’m a big fan of almost everything Pixar does (Cars wasn’t their best effort, though it was enjoyable), so it is a happy day when a story that links Pixar to my favorite computer company comes along.

It would seem that the good folks at Pixar really wanted to play up the differences between the titular hero of Wall*E and a new robot that appears (Eve, pictured to the right). They wanted it to look very cool, and very high tech. Luckily for Pixar, they know a guy pretty high up in Apple who was able to get Jonathan Ive, Apple’s famed product designer, to help out with Eve’s look.

I wonder if Eve’s battery is user replaceable.
