In the techie world we live in, it’s practically impossible for companies like Disney to keep their projects a secret, even with giant fences blocking views from the ground level. It seems like there is always a leak somewhere and news or photos get out before Disney intended them to. Whether it’s drones or helicopters, there is always someone trying to peek.
We’ve learned that Disney (NYSE: DIS) has recently filed a patent, dubbed Commercial Drone Detection, aimed at intercepting drones launched by fans and media get a listen or even a look at private Disney projects. Here is an excerpt from the patent:
Last month, we told you about a new Disney patent that could personalize attractions based on guests’ emotions. Take a look at this additional information on how they might be able to accomplish this:
“Disney’s eye-tracking patent seeks to measure the whites of guests’ eyes to determine where they are looking. This technology could improve the performance of animatronics and more.”
Disney files many patents that do not come to fruition, but the drone detection one might seem the most likely as the company does take great pride in being able to control the timing of their information being released.
