RoboCoaster going into Epcot Innoventions

Raytheon’s new exhibit for Innoventions at Epcot exhibit will allow guests to use math and engineering principles to create their own roller coaster, jet plane or bobsled ride, and then experience their customized ride inside a unique motion simulator.

“The Sum of All Thrills” exhibit and simulator experience will be supported by a Kuka robotic arm as well as “Surface” computer technology. Guests will interact with a multi-touch surface table computer to design their thrill ride of choice. According to WDI’s Brent Strong (associate concept designer) in a newsletter to CM’s, “We put the outline of a hill on the table and give the guests a physical protractor and ruler. By simply dragging their fingers along the protractor, they can change the angle of the hill, and using the ruler, alter its height. Add the right amount of energy to the equation, and guests have created their very own experience,”

The attraction will be Innoventions first “ride” experience. It is currently scheduled to open in late 2009.

Update: Attractions Magazine has more info about the attraction.
