Disney has created and filed a patent for a potential upcoming enhancement to resort rooms. The patent proposed details a certain type of lighting system that would immerse guests in an all new experience driven by lighting technology. The idea claims to create animated imagery within the resort hotel rooms themselves and may even be accompanied by sound. Of course, at the time being this is just a patent and Disney files hundreds of patents that may or may not play out in the parks and resorts. However, it is an interesting concept and here are the details from the information included in the patent filing:

For instance, right now if one plays a car racing game on a computer, they not only drive the cars, they also hear them, hear other cars, hear the crowd, see fiery crashes, hear the explosions, and the game play is back-grounded by emotional music and the like. If they play with a slot car, they only get to drive a car. There are few sounds, certainly no background music to amp up the emotions. When they play on a screen, the world is completely surrounding and immersive, they only have to move by brain through the frame of the screen bezel and they are into another world. If they play in their room, none of this is true. The goal of the projector with its camera and audio attachments of the display systems described herein is to allow a room, where ever the room is located, to become as immersive as any screen environment or even more so.
To this end, the display system is a device that can be both an input and an output device. On the output side, the display system is a projector of still or animated visual imagery, and the display system may include a speaker or otherwise be capable of sending audio signals to speakers elsewhere in the room. In this way, the display system may provide an audio track to projected imagery to enhance the display and/or gaming experience.
