As we previously reported Disney filed a request for an exception to FAA rules to enable it to fly drones well now they are filing for a patent for projectors to work with these drones.


When Disney first applied for the drone they made the statement:

“The inventors recognized, that presently there are no mechanisms for creating very large aerial displays, such as a display that is reusable/repeatable, dynamic, and interactive. To address that need, Disney’s R&D department is working to create a multi-drone aerial display system and a ground control station that could choreograph repeatable movements.”


This is where the projectors will come into play, the projector will have the ability to project still photos and videos and will contain a polypropylene mesh screen which will allow airflow yet still have adequate opaqueness to act as a RP screen.


For a while Disney has said they would like to use the drones to create large characters during their night shows at Disney World, FL and Disneyland, CA. This is where these projectors will really shine, they will be working alongside the drones to enhance the light shows.


Disney also says that not only will these projectors work with creating better entertainment which will be better advertising, they could also help other application such as rapid dissemination of emergency.
