Imagineering recently revealed the final parts of the new Project Tomorrow post-show for Spaceship Earth at Epcot.
The screens around the ceiling have come to life, showcasing the faces of guests as snapped on the ride itself, and also showing profiles and images of Siemens students scholars who they are recognizing. The large central globe now shows faces of riders and then roughly where they live, as they chose on the touch screen of the ride.
A major new feature is the central kiosk in the space. It allows you to find your image and future as chosen on the ride, as you approach, it recognizes your face and loads you photo and scene – if it doesn’t work you can find it by the choices you made on the ride, and see just how many other people made the same choices recently, which can be mind boggling in and of itself. Once found, that image can be emailed home.
