What new technology or ride system would you like to see in Disney’s new rides?

I have seen many discussions about “what new Character/Film/intellectual property Disney should use in its new rides/attractions. Although I would love to see a Star Wars or LOTR Land, for me this (the IP) is a secondary matter. Much more important than the theme is the ride technology involved, how it is used, and how good the theme is executed. No matter if it is Avatar, SW, Marvel or Disney’s Rodents.

Some of the best attractions ever built by Disney had no IP related to its theme, like Jungle Cruise, Pirates of the Caribbean, Haunted Mansion, Space Mountain, etc… I had never heard of Twilight before TOT, since it was never broadcasted to Brazil, but I enjoyed it in the same way. And I am sure that if Forbidden Journey was based in a generic theme, not HP, it would still make more success than another HP based attraction like Dueling Dragons or FOTH.

So, my question is; what new technology or ride system would you like to see in Disney’s new rides?

My list:
1- Vekoma Pandora’s Box http://www.vekoma.com/index.php/specialities-and-attractions/pandora-s-box
2- B&M Wing Coaster http://www.bolliger-mabillard.com/products/wing_en.aspx
3- Intamins ZacSpin Coaster http://www.intaminworldwide.com/amusement/RollerCoasters/ZacSpin+Coaster/tabid/138/ProductNumber/ZacSpin+Coaster/language/en-US/Default.aspx
4- No Glass 3D technology
5- 3D “Soaring” ride, with flying coasters seats

Wait, TOT isn't based of that bad novel Twilight! I'd love to see glasses free 3D encorporated somehow, even though it's not new technology.

Yeah you're mixing up Twilight (drastically inferior teen drama with vampires) with Twilight Zone (creepy, drama, sci-fi, horror, thriller, etc. self contained stories)!

More interactive technology like Monsters Inc. in Japan, newer more life-like AA's, and less 100% 3D screen Attractions.

Trackless Dark Rides like Pooh Bear in Tokyo.

The Whispering effect of the Gargoyles in WDW and TDL's Haunted Mansion.
