Disney is always working to create incredible new experiences using advanced technology. Disney Research in particular, has created a way for people to interact with animated characters in real-time.
Their Magic Bench creates a virtual experience that introduces you to characters and surrounds you with an unpredictable environment, without the use of a headset.
