Avatar Rumours, Tech & Construction

Avatar Land

First we had the flying dragon tests….now we have interactive plants.

The new Avatar themed land at Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom Park looks to have some amazing technology in the works to help create the most realistic experience ever. An article was posted on Engadget last week and points to some interesting technology from DIsney Research that allows human touch to interact with plants.

Will this tech be used as part of the Avatar hyper-themed land? We’re not sure. Either way, count on more interesting news to surface as this project begins its first bit of preparation and construction according to Screamscape. An internal memo sent from Joe Rohde mentioned August 3, 2012 as the first day of on-site construction work for “Pandora – The World of Avatar”. People have also been seeing height balloons over Animal Kingdom. Let the Pandoramonium begin!
