Disney has a new patent out that sounds like a real life “Inside Out” experience. Disney’s new patent name is, “Sensing and Managing Vehicle Behavior Based on Occupant Awareness”. The essential idea behind the patent is a custom ride experience by detecting facial expressions and mood of passenger to customize the ride to be the best experience possible. For example, if a passenger seems bored as recognized by cameras or a wearable device than the ride can go faster or spin more. What if a guest is bored? Than a change of scenery may be in order!
It does not end with just facial recognition, even the temperature could be adjusted to your liking. A guest could also decide what kind of experience they want through other data collection such as thrilling ride, slow ride, educational ride or what kind of entertainment they would like. The possibilities seem endless. Different path ways in the ride were also discussed in the pattern. There is no confirmation at this time of what kind of story line may some day fit this ride patent.
Disney surprises us once again with innovation. This sounds like a ride guests can go on over and over again and have different experiences.
