Artist Alex George started collecting miniature Disneyland Main Street Electrical Parade floats a couple years ago. He then got the idea to take the miniatures, and bring them to life. He used a whole army of BlinkM’s, some amazing CAD work, a new recreation of Disneyland’s main street, and help from what looks to be a homemade CNC machine.
Anyway, the video is really well done, and the final product is worthy as Disneyland attraction on its own.
