A little old (taken in June) but a picture of inside the land itself

This was an art installation that was set up at my city hall. It was created by a collective from France - I believe - called scenocosme. The piece is called Akousmaflore and is described as sensitive and interactive musical performance plants. When users brushed their hands through the foliage it triggered an audio response. The technology explained was...and this is layman's terms...sensors that read the the conductive energy created when your body completed a circuit with components of the plant. Kind of like your body was a plug and the plant was an outlet.
Sorry anonymous, they were posted as new on that date so I trusted the poster.
Here is an update from the end of June however which I know is genuine.
no these are about 3 months old
More about those patents for new technology to bring Avatar to life
Disney files patent for possible Avatar Land technology:
There's no clear indication in the patent that it's related to the Avatar expansion, but the patent, called User Interactive Living Organism s, describes "capacitive sensing to detect human interaction with living plants" and provide an experience that "may be an audio or video effect that is based on the type of user interaction such as whether the user touched the plant's leaf or stem" — so it's safe to say it may be Avatar.
Photo is captioned as: Photo "shows how a person may interact with a tree and it could have a response where an audio element is played."

This video is mainly focussed on Rivers of Light but it shows the Avatarland area from the outside (with the show building in the front) which is a new view for me. That big grey/brown building is the one which is themed fully with boulder work along the front.
Avatarland is just getting taller all the time!
