V.I.N.CENT rides again?

V.I.N.CENT from Disney\'s The Black HoleBefore there was WALL-E, Disney’s most famous robot was V.I.N.CENT the robot from Disney’s “The Black Hole.” His name is an acronym for Vital Information Necessary, CENTralized. (Man, that was a stretch.) Although he was essentially a poor-man’s R2D2, he could hover, fight, and even communicate via ESP. He even has his own Wikipedia page.

Also check out Ed over at The Blog Wore Tennis Shoes with his look at “The Black Hole” Golden book and this fan page FAQ for details on the movie.

I hear that if you keep your eyes open during Pixar’s WALL-E you’ll see a robot that is a tribute to Vincent.
