Disney have filed for three patents for tech that is associated with the upcoming hotel experience, Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser.
The Disney Information Station breaks down the patents:
The first of the three patents filed by Disney is for “image generation using a spinning display and blur screen.” This technology will allow a guests to interact with a floating or hovering hologram. According to the filing, “As a result of the image generation performed by spinning of display and blur screen, image may appear to be floating in space.”
The second patent covers a “large-scale infinity optics window for use in small facility packaging applications.” As we’ve seen in details that have been released previously regarding the upcoming Star Wars-themed resort, each room will feature a “window” that offers guests a view into space. According to the filing, the infinity optics window is “a display system that provides a window or portal that can be mounted within a wall of a facility (or in a small packaging application with only a small amount of depth available) but yet provide an infinity effect for content displayed to a plurality of viewers in a room including the wall over a wide field of view.”
The final patent is for a “themed aerial vehicle entertainment platform for providing dynamically-coordinated show.” Could this be for something akin to the X-wing that flew over the opening week media event for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge? The filing is for “a new system or platform (and related operational method) adapted for providing a dynamically-coordinated show (e.g., coordinated between airborne and ground devices) to entertain guests of a facility such as a theme park, an outdoor sporting stadium, a cruise ship and so on.”
Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser is currently being built near Disney’s Hollywood Studios, in the Epcot at the Walt Disney World Resort, Florida. It is scheduled to open in 2021.
