    Wasn't that the idea of Playmation a few years back?

      Yes, but what matters even more than the technology is the imagination of those tasked to create something to utilize it. They need top visionaries, artists, entertainers, storytellers, animators, designers, colorists, performers... showpeople (IE: true "Imagineers" in the Walt sense - rather than just tech heads, gamers, marketers, bankers, and data analysts) to fully take advantage of the possibilities beyond expectations and build virtual worlds worth exploring beyond our own, worlds with an illusion of life like the animated Disney classics. They need to get back to creating beauty and fantasy that brightens our lives, resonates and inspires. Gloomy dystopias are a tired cliche.

            Well said. It's unfortunate that Disney has the money that would allow them to put their new technology into the hands of top visionaries, artists, entertainers, storytellers, animators, designers, colorists, performers and showpeople -- true "Imagineers" in the Walt sense -- but is controlled by a hierarchy of marketers, bankers and data analysts.

              Interesting........
              Be Truthful....I do not know.....to much about technology ?
              But sure your right ....it will be controlled by a hierarchy of marketers, bankers and data analysts.
              After all it really about MONEY !
              IMO

                The disclaimer here is that not all of Disney patents pan out. Spidey's stuntronic did, but not the rumored swinging ride system for a potential Spider-man ride. Or the human made artificial clouds. Or the Planes simulator.

                Basically takes this with grain of a salt, as it may never be made.

                  Also remember development on major blue sky ideas take a lot of time and money. Not everything that doesn't immediately come is dead.

                    This comes across like imagineers and techies can't work side by side and make these projects?? Why can't they work together to create beauty and fantasy?

                      Open air projections - in other words, if you want to see these in the parks once the tech is available, you'll have to pay extra, an "eye-fee" so to speak. If you don't pay, you'll be required to wear special goggles in order to block them out.

                      Or - this option

                        I was wondering the same as I know Mitsubishi's TV division back when it was a real player in the space in the late 90's had a technology where two people could watch a totally different image on the same screen if they sat apart from each other. ( My friends Dad was an engineer for that division back then and was always bringing tech home to show my friends and I. Sony or Samsung also brought a similar thing to market in the early 2000's that required glasses. Mitsubishi did not require glasses and they were evidently waiting to get their directional sound system done before releasing to market as they were also working on directed sound bars so somebody would hear a particular sounds that others did not but it still had a lot of work due to sound bleed and bounce. The whole idea was kids could watch cartoons while parents watched shows all on the same TV. I do not know the full tech result and my friends father has since sadly past a year ago due to Covid. Something tells me Disney is likely using similar tech.

                          Imagineers and techies work together very well. Tech is, and always has been, a key part of imagineering.

                          The problem is management. Note-spewing, creativity-crushing, budget-slashing management.

                                  Next up… buy this brand new technologically innovative and immersive Disneyland Resort Home Television Theatre app on your chosen 8K steaming device where you, along with your headset, can walk around anywhere in the park, interact with cast members, and SHOP!,,, and additionally acquire living room accessories tailor-made to enjoy the sit-down DL rides that you’ve enjoyed your entire life.

                                  There will be galactic expenses to download this exclusive app, and every Park virtual visit will cost you twice as much as a Tier 1 day pass (ya know.. because it’s more convenient for you at home…. But virtual parking will still be $35..)

                                      Ok so I read the patent and saw the images. What this looks like is simply projection mapping with visitor tracking to get location data to change the perspective of the projected image. Disney already does projection mapping (Castle and Main Street Buildings) but what makes this different is that the tech will use visitor location data from most likely the Disney App and then project a character or scene on a wall, object or building. This will allow the image to change perspective based on where the user is. For example, Mickey is projected on a wall, but if you walk to the left of the image, Mickey will appear to rotate so that it looks like he's in 3d space and you are seeing him from the side. The technology isn't really designed for large audiences so this might be some kind of paid feature to have interactions throughout the park.
