Well this idea has been rolling around in my head for a couple months now, and I wanted to know what y'all thought of it.
I know the idea of a ride photo on IJ is a popular one; heck, at this point, an E-ticket without one is kind of unheard of. But my idea takes the concept of a ride photo a bit further. The photo is taken in the Hall of Promise, right as Mara says his thing about foolish mortals looking into his eyes. What sets this ride photo apart is that there is some sort of software that recognizes who looked into Mara's eyes and turns them into skeletons, i.e. what people were warned about in the queue. So the ride photo could end up as a car full of skeletons or people reacting in shock to the skeleton next to them; all sorts of fun things.
I know there's software packaged in cellphone cameras that can detect if someone is blinking; I'm sure there can be a program developed to detect eye contact. And since there are already strobe effects in the Hall of Promise, the picture taking won't detract much from the ambience of the ride.
I really think people would like it - I've floated this idea on various social media outlets and received pretty positive feedback. Your thoughts?
