NASA Spacesuit Takes Page From Disney?

(KTVI) - NASA released the first pictures of a prototype for a new line of spacesuits and they look mighty familiar to Disney fans. Many say it bears a striking resemblance to Buzz Lightyear's suit in "Toy Story". 

There's no word on whether or not that's a coincidence or a bid for more publicity by NASA.  It's called the "Z-one" and should be ready for use in the next couple of years. It's the first such prototype in more than 20 years and Time Magazine has named it one of the best inventions of 2012.
