Disney Developing AR Costumes For Theme Park VisitorsDisney Research are working on a way for theme park visitors to take the ultimate selfie.
Disney have been involved in immersive technology in a number of ways. From way back in the days of the ‘Disney Quest’ arcades, to recent work by the Disney Research team on virtual reality (VR) and mixed reality (MR). The House of Mouse are now aiming to bring augmented reality (AR) to its theme park guests.
When visiting one of Disney’s famous parks, one of the things everyone wants to do is get some great photographs. The new AR system that Disney is working on will let guests dress as their favourite Disney character without needing to put on a costume.
The system is being worked on by Disney Research, the technological development arm of the company, who have previously worked on other immersive projects, such as the mixed reality bench.
