Universal Publishes Another Patent to Make Future Wand Battles Accessible to All

Earlier this year, Universal published a patent that would allow park visitors to duel in true wizarding world fashion in the near future, brilliant flashes of light included. This was an exciting development because we’re pretty sure almost every single Potterhead out there has dreamed of the day they can finally cast realistic-looking spells.

Now, Universal has published another patent that will allow guests to have almost complete freedom when casting spells, which means you won’t necessarily have to brush up on your wand movements before you challenge someone to a duel.

The new patent, Variable Effects Activation in an Interactive Environment, will allow for the wand system to respond as it sees appropriate when someone makes a movement it doesn’t recognize. This means that guests would be able to perform a wide range of movements to activate the beams of light. This will be great for people who can’t perform certain movements or simply want to get creative and make up their own. In short, everyone will be able to enjoy wizarding duels, even the youngest of witches and wizards.

This is indeed exciting news, and we can’t wait for all of this to become a reality. What’s the very first spell you’d like to cast? Tell us in the comments.

Growing up, I was a massive fan of Harry Potter and my love for the stories grew as I got older. It’s no surprise then that I love writing about all things Potter related. When I’m not writing about all the magic, you’ll find me reading (probably something Harry Potter related), listening to music, or writing some songs.
