Disney has always been about … magic, so no wonder they came up with a Magic Bench.
At Disney research they have come up creating a magic bench for you to sit on and enjoy an immersive virtual reality. The bench is placed in front of a very large screen reflecting your image. The system captures your figure, gestures and voice and create the illusion of being transported into a magic space where you see and interact with Disney characters, a cute elephant, a peevish frog and so on.
To further enhance the perception an haptic interface is placed in the bench so that when the little, but heavy, elephant sits by your side the bench feels the weight, and you too!
