The international entertainment giant Disney recently announced a patent approval to provide metaverse functionality in its theme parks.

The company will be using technology that tracks the activities of Disney park visitors on their phones. It will then generate personalized interactive attractions for each of these visitors, displaying them as 3D images on nearby physical spaces, walls, and other objects in the park.

The patent, known as a ‘virtual world simulator in a real place,’ was approved on December 28, 2021. Disney officially registered it with the US Patent and Trademark Office in July 2020.

Other companies in the metaverse portray the technology as web-based and require virtual reality (VR) or augmented reality (AR) headsets. This is not the case with Disney’s proposal to bring digital experiences to the physical world. Additionally, this technology will not require the use of headsets during interactive sessions.

Disney enters the metaverse

Disney shared its vision of the metaverse in November 2020. At that time, the chief strategist, Tilak Mandadi, published an article on LinkedIn on this topic.

“As we look to the future, connected park experiences that transcend the physical and digital barrier and unlock new layers of storytelling are a very exciting focus of ours.”

Mandadi said the experiences will be “perennial” but also unique to the person, and “social and connected.”
