Disney Is Making Fireworks That Blind People Can Feel

posted by Scott and Sadie -

It's really good to see all the technology in the world go toward something that's pure GOOD.

 

Disney's research department has been working on a new type of fireworks . . . ones that blind people can FEEL.

 

And that makes a lot of sense since a big part of the Disney World and Disneyland experience is the fireworks show . . . which is just a lot of loud, disappointing noises if you're blind.

 

To experience "feeling fireworks," a person puts their hands on a large, special screen.  Then different nozzles shoot out water in the pattern of the fireworks, and also make noises that recreate the sounds of those fireworks.

 

Right now, it's just in its demo phase, but apparently, it's coming along well.  There's no word on when Disney could make it available at the parks.
