    Spaceship Earth rehab details emerge

    It looks like some of the new effects added to the finally of the ride are going to be video based. A facial recognition software will scan the riders and place them in a video of the future giving riders a personalized ending.

    This isn't a very accommodating technology for those of us without heads...

    I can think of at least two characters in Disney-produced films that wouldn't even be able to have this so-called personalized ending... I smell a lawsuit from the headless horseman or The Blank. And what happens if Mombi forgets to bring a head with her? Everything's catered to Madame Leota these days... figures.

    No, that deserves another.





    The words "video based" strike fear into my heart..........MLF, Nemo.
    But if the scenes are on the new in- vehicle screens.......very nice indeed!

    LOL!!!!

    I had heard there may be an interactive experience, I am looking forward to the updates. I hope they don't do anything to the first half of the ride.

    Oh, I get that now I saw someone talking about the MILF, and I was wondering who they were talking about!

    Re: Spaceship Earth rehab details emerge

    I had heard that the facial recognition and videos of the future were going to ber what they do with the globe and surrounding starfield screens, not in the ride itself.


    Best hold on to Your Hats and Glasses, 'cause this heres the Wildest Ride in the Wilderness!

    I didn't even know what the bad one was until this past year. I didn't know what the acronym for Monsters Inc Laugh Floor was until today, though!

    I think I'll just continue to spell it out.

    Re: Spaceship Earth rehab details emerge

    The facial recognition system was being tested the weeks before SSE went down. Two, rater bright flashes illuminated the area near the communications tunnel and a photograph would be taken of each individual person.
    The photographs were then viewable by guests in the Post-show area.

    I am not sure if the system is going to be used in the ride or not.

    I just glanced quickly at the title of the thread and thinking it was the Space Mountain thread, couldn't understand how the new star field effects wouldn't be accommodating for people without heads. Oops...

    I have to say this new ending sounds a little unusual. I guess I'll just have to wait and see how it turns out.

    Re: Spaceship Earth rehab details emerge

    it has been confirmed that is part of the ride. They will use this technology for the final decent where they are going to use your image for a personalized ending of the ride.

    Confirmed by who? Now I believe you about the technology as it does fit with whole "personalized ending" they talked about before the ride went down, but it does help if you say who (or what) is confirming it.
