Yes, I’m extrapolating. So far the prototype is only going to charge your devices for you while you’re close enough to the Tesla Omni-Directional Radiant Energy Projector* (but not too close). But we all know that Tesla was working on death rays; and as for the killer death robots, well.
While their system is far from commercial ready, it’s no less impressive and as they develop it further in the coming years, it’s not hard to believe that Disney could (eventually) equip their theme parks with wireless power zones, allowing guests to charge their electronic devices by simply entering the space. If entire attraction queues were flooded with wireless power, guests would never have to worry about draining their batteries by killing time with their devices while waiting. Likewise, one could imagine Disney’s parks one day being populated by free-roaming Audio-Animatronics figures, able to run throughout the day via wireless power sources.
I’m not exactly worried about that last bit happening. But I can see why some people might be worried about that happening. ‘Free-roaming Audio-Animatronics’ figures is a recipe for bad decision-making scenarios. Particularly if alcohol is involved. And alcohol will inevitably be involved.
