Orlando’s Disney World has invested an estmated US$1B in a new wearable designed to give visitors a frictionless experience at the park. Your ‘MagicBand’ connects you to a vast and powerful system of sensors within the park, allowing you to interact seemlessly with the rides you’ve booked, get greeted by name at restaurants and have your food delivered to you without even glancing in the direction of a waiter. A perfect application for a wearable, the MagicBand seems to echo the words of one of Walt Disney’s earliest flyers: “You will find yourself in the land of yesterday, tomorrow, and fantasy”.
