Disneyland Uses Cameraphones

From Disneyland parks use cameraphones for interaction

As its prototype theme park hits the half-century mark today, The Walt Disney Co. is facing some critical challenges.

"Almost everything Disney does today is passive, while kids today expect everything to be interactive," said Martin Lindstrom, a brand expert and author who has consulted for Disney.

Disney is counting on the Internet, cell phones, digital projectors and other technology to make its parks more appealing to Gen-Y while maintaining the nostalgia that appeals to baby boomers.

... Cell phones will play a role in parks of the future. A game, for instance, could require guests to take a particular picture with their camera phone to activate an animated clue.

Why couldn't you make the clues informative as well as interactive?
