According to a recent patent filing, Disney is planning on adding innovative virtual technology offerings in their theme parks in the near future.
The Walt Disney Company was granted a patent on Dec. 28 by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for a Virtual World Simulator that enables multiple users to experience a 3D virtual world from multiple vantage points without any glasses, goggles or digital devices.
Disney’s Virtual World Simulator creates a realistic and highly-immersive 3D virtual experience without requiring the user to wear an AR headset or use an AR-enabled smartphone, according to the patent.
Disney’s patented Virtual World Simulator would create 3D imagery using multiple projectors capable of generating a high rate of images per second.
The 3D virtual effects projected by Disney’s Virtual World Simulator in real-world venues could include animated characters along with simulated objects, props and artwork, according to the patent.
