Disney Creating Fireworks You Can Feel for Blind Guests

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

In an innovative move, Disney Research has created a new technology to allow blind guests to “feel” fireworks. A short video can be viewed below, but to read more on this technology, click here.

Using multiple waterjets, guests will be able to experience the same show that is happening in the skies, but with touch instead. Whilst fireworks are being used as an example, this has a multitude of different uses, possibly allowing guests to have new experiences at the parks that aren’t just visual.
