Disney Invented Tech That Prints Speakers In Anything.

So, firstly, I had no idea Disney had research labs, but more importantly, holy crap. Apparently, they’ve made a breakthrough that allows them to build a speaker into literally any object. Not only can anything be a speaker, but they can also add proximity sensors such that different speakers interact with different tokens. This will allow you to walk into a room, and depending on a pre-existing choice you made (say, whether you wanted a duck, bunny or frog), the corresponding speaker would play once the token was in range of it (i.e. the duck/bunny/frog animatronic device inside the ride you’re on). This is going to seriously fuck with the way we build art installations, studios and interactive media, especially if everything in this video pans out. (via Fast Co. Design)
