  • Big Brother could give you a DVD of your trip to DL

    Here's an idea from a Disney-sponsored contest for student engineers:

    When you enter Disneyland, you get a wristband with an RFID transmitter. Receivers around the park would track your location as you walk around and go on rides and cameras would capture your movements. At the end of the day, you could buy a DVD of your day.

    I think it's an interesting idea. Imagine having a video of yourself on every ride you went on during the day. They could splice in alternating views of you and views of the ride - kinda like an in-car camera on an auto-race broadcast. It would be a great souvenir to look back at as you changes, or kids grew up, or rides changed.

    TOO Flippin' creepy for me. I KNOW that guests are on camera much of the time they're in the park, a guy I know who works for DLR Security claims there's over 400 security cameras in the open areas of the resort alone (but won't say how many are in hotels, restaurants, attractions or stores.)

    But I don't want to be reminded I'm being electronically "stalked/watched", not even for my own enjoyment.
    IMO - YMMV - FYIGM
