MechE Students Make It to Disney's Imagineering Finals
Pick any city in the world and design a Disney experience for its citizens and tourists. This was the engineering challenge taken on by MechE seniors Laura Laham, Andre Sutanto, and Anisha Vyas for the 2013 Disney ImagiNations competition. The team is among the 6 finalists who are competing this week at Walt Disney Imagineering in Glendale, California.
The team is showcasing an interactive adventure called “Legenda Emas.” The Legenda Emas attraction is an interactive boat ride that follows a betrothed prince and princess, and a jealous witch who wished to keep them apart. The ride, based on an Indonesian legend, seeks to create an immersive experience by placing guests into the story as volunteers of the royal search party.
CMU students took second place at last year's competition. The MechE department wishes this year's team the best of luck!
