Disney to Patent "Augemented Reality" Cakes...Really? It's CAKE!

Okay, seriously...enough is enough .... Apparently Disney has applied for a patent for Augmented Reality CAKES, yes, as in the birthday kind. Does EVERYTHING really need to have to have a screen??????? It's CAKE, unless you are adding more frosting ... leave it alone!


Disney wants to bring augmented reality to cakes according to patent

Cakes are cakes, right? After all how many ways can a cake be designed? There are regular cakes, then there are novelty cakes, but it looks like Disney wants to take cakes to the next level by patenting what looks like an augmented reality cake. No this isn’t an imaginary cake – the cake itself would be real but what the patent suggests is that there could be some elements added to the cake that will introduce interactive movies and images that will make cake eating more interesting. One of the more basic ways of introducing augmented reality to the cake would be the diagram above which relies on a mini projector and motion sensors.

I wonder if they will do an augmented reality pie.

Those long time DIS'ers will remember this debate.
