    That is so cool. Imagine having Micky ears on even a smaller scale synchronised to the rest of the show.

    Do you think that they are using a radio frequency device to tell the ears when they need to change colors? I'm trying to think of what "cheap" way they did this.

    It's gotta be an RF signal of some kind I would think... You can see some strays at some points in the show, so it isn't 2-way (way to expensive!). Don't think IR would work, cause people are looking in different directions at different heights...

    Based on other YouTube videos, it looks like people have to buy them for $25 each (and thus would keep them). They're also being used with other attractions in the park and can be used stand-alone, so there's more than just this show. Perhaps MPH can share some of the details of the tech with us since he said he got a bit of a look at the system a couple weeks before they started using it.

    mrpackethead said "Just for absolute clarity, i had nothing to do with this, but its such a cool idea, i thought I'd share it with you.. I was able to get a bit of a backstage look at the system a few weeks ago though."

    So...can you share what TX system they used? And was it a temporary handout or did they buy the ears?

    Just curious...

    hmmm... not sure about RFID.... That means every ear has an ID number? and RFID max range should only be ~12'... RF yes, RFID, I'm not sure.
