  • Re: The Optimist: Disney's WDI/WED Tomorrowland Movie ARG - Summary and Recap

    From the synopsis at the beginning of this thread...

    The Blueprints: Lots of fun information here. Looks like there was a portal system, to this city. Each of the three projects AND patents are mentioned:

    Auto Apparatus: Shown on the Blueprint of the Rocket to the Moon building. RTTM was designed to be a "supra-transit" trainer, which would show you your travel status. The figures match up to those in the patent that we found before.

    Mark 0: This is the Circarama patent. But, it was actually designed to be a Holographic Virtual Reality projection system. Each of the figures in the patent is explained. Esentially, this could create virtual worlds - like an early Holideck.

    Signal Flag: Is actually a portal device. The (T.A.P.E.) deck that was referenced in the patent is the portal controller. Each imaged described is part of the portal grid.

      So does the "TU" symbol really mean Plus Ultra? I remembered this latin phrase from a work project - it translates to "more beyond" (something like that) and was minted on Spanish coins from the 18th century:

      Also I found several sites relating optimism and plus ultra, coincidence??

        Yup. The +U logo stands for Plus Ultra which is the official name for "The Society". I think it means "far beyond" or something in Latin.

        The Oatmeal started talking about Plus Ultra with Damon Lindelof and Brad Bird. We're speculating on FB that a Phase Two is coming.

              Decided to look behind the curtain where the 7th screen was hidden in the Optimist Finale and I noticed that the screen was glowing, Not sure if that was intended or if Disney is planning on using it for another purpose

                That's really cool. Was there anything on the screen when you looked?

                  It was just a grey glowing screen, Nothing to note but it was interesting that they had it turned on
