    Popular Mechanics article on Future World Rides

    "Fact-Checking 5 Epcot Rides That Predicted the Future"

    Interesting article that compares how Epcot's Future World rides have done:

    5 Future Worlds Predicted by Epcot Center - Captain Eo Michael Jackson and Other Rides - Popular Mechanics

    Personally, I wish they had done more about the Universe of Energy, the Land and the Living Seas.

    Also, no mention of Communicore!

    This doesn't relate to the "projections" of the "EPCOT future", but Popular Mechanics did do an interesting piece on Universe of Energy's ride system. You can see a photo from it--and as much detail as you'll find anywhere, on my EPCOT's Universe of Energy Companion Site.

    For the technical stuff, go to Pavilion, then "Ride & Show Technology".

    That was cool, but did you check out the link at the bottom of those pages "5 Theme Park Rides That Pushed the Limits of Common Sense"? Actually, I'll likely look at a few things there; thanks.
