Disneyland will be introducing a new ride that customizes and adapts itself based on emotions and facial expressions. The patented project called, "Sensing and Managing Vehicle Based on Occupant Awareness," will have the rides respond and modify the experience to what the visitor feels or wants.
To accomplish this, Disney will resort to either have cameras on vehicles or wearable ID devices that recognize the expressions and record it based on the system it has on its data board. According to Travel and Leisure, those who seek an adrenaline pumping ride lets the "camera or wearable ID device recognize boredom and immediately increase speed or spinning frequency, while scenery could be altered for young children who spook easily."
The rides will also be changing the temperature of the rooms or whether the guests would interact with the elements of the experience. For those with motion sickness, a ride tailored to your needs is also met accordingly.
The patent states: "The technology would allow rides to adjust show content appropriate for pre-teens, teenagers or adults; or for thrill-seeking and non-thrill-seeking passengers. The control system may also operate the vehicle to address (e.g. even solve in some cases) motion sickness issues for passengers such as by adjusting speed or movement patterns of a vehicle."
It is yet to be seen if whether the rides will be incorporated into the existing ones or should they be geared for newer ride attractions. Disney has patented the experience on the last day of January but how should it be constructed is still in the works.
There is one question the internet has, though, for the new attraction: Should guests have the same expression to experience the ride they want from start to finish? Because it would be so hard to continue smiling all the way through the ride if one seeks to have a pleasant experience.
