Glow with the Show -- Literally!

Disney always does crazy things with the newest technology.

Awhile back, they debuted the show "World of Color."  And now they're adding to the show!

I'm not referring to the new Brave section in the show, though that is pretty cool.

I'm referring to some pretty neat Mickey Mouse ears that will glow with the show -- literally!

To understand what I mean, this video below gives you an idea.  All those glowing things right in front of the camera?  Mickey Mouse ears...ears!


That's right.  With these new ears, the wearer takes part in "World of Color!"

The ears before they start to glow!

According to the Disney Parks Blog, "Now, using the latest interactive technology, our newest ear hats will quite literally let you 'Glow with the Show.'  Watch as the iridescent ears change to complement and harmonize with what’s happening around you, allowing you to become a part of the magic of our nighttime spectaculars, such as 'World of Color' and Mad T Party. But that’s not all – there are lots of surprises in store when you visit Disney California Adventure park with Glow with the Show Ears, so I’ll let you discover them for yourself!"

And as you saw in the video, "the Glow with the Show Ears become a set of pixels that dance and play along with each sequence in ‘World of Color’ in a bright and dynamic way. For example, during the show, guests become part of the ocean with the Little Mermaid, a shining galaxy of stars for WALL-E and Eve, an extension of the Genie’s magic in ‘Friend Like Me,’ among other interactive explosions of color throughout the entire show. It truly brings the show’s environment out of the lagoon and into the audience in an amazing and dazzling new way" (Disney Parks Blog)!

Now, the question is, where do I buy?

See ya all real soon!

***UPDATE***

Sorry for the incorrect source information under the glowing ears.  Hope this clears everything up.  I got it from one source, but it originally came from another.

    2. Did you originally post something?

    3. Harrison might mean that the gif of the ears glowing has a different name in the bottom corner than the one you found it on, probably a result of reposting without permission by the other person. Not your fault :) You can't even read the bottom right words anyway. I dont know why it's such a big deal.

    4. Oh I see, Harrison posted it first. I'm sorry -- I thought I just had to post where I got it from. I can change it for you, Harrison. I could barely read the reblogging and liking text under where I got it from...
