Disney's theme parks are synonymous with gorgeous light displays and surreal animatronics. The company's latest project really takes the theme park experience to the next level — Botanicus Interacticus, "a technology for designing highly expressive interactive plants, both living and artificial."
Judging from Disney's preview tease, the tech seems intriguing: A skilled pair of hands played the air around a living orchid like an instrument, causing an ear-pleasing modulation of sound. And the entire sensation can be projected into light, with each passing finger causing an ephemeral wave of color.
