Every year, millions of tourists and thrill-seekers visit theme parks around the world exploring one of a kind sights, sounds and heights. Some theme parks have an idea to enhance the entertainment experience for tourists with wearable technologies. In this article, WT | Wearable Technologies would like to reveal how wearables impact the theme park experience.
MagicBands at DisneyLand
What does the MagicBands do? MyMagic+ is the system which is supposed to help you navigate the daunting task of theme park visits with a MagicBands on your wrist. The bracelet links electronically to an encrypted database of visitor information, serve as admission tickets, hotel keys and credit or debit card. It begins when you book your hotel and tickets through Disney. After that, you are able to plan every detail on your trip from airport to hotel transportation. Additionally you can also schedule when your visit to each theme park is, where you would like to dine for meals. Moreover, you are allowed to pre-order your food. You don’t need to endure waiting in a super long line when you are hungry. Also, the tracking power is extremely important for Disney theme park because it helps Disney determine when to add more staff at ride, what restaurants should serve, what souvenirs should be stocked and how many employees in costume should roam around at any given time.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
