Creepy or amazing?

On a recent visit to Disney World, our techie son and his family seemed to enjoy the convenience of the MagicBand. The bands, which have radio frequency identification chips, electronically link information on the bracelets to a database.

As “Snowdon-NSA”conversations still swirl around my DC-Metro neighborhood, some parents find it amazing that Disney servers “magically” can locate them in a crowded restaurant. Other parents are “creeped out” when Disney “cast members” greet a birthday child by name while walking down Main Street.

The ride and reservation system of wearable tech is sure to be critiqued as parents begin planning vacation planning.
