Due to final exams and end-of-school-year operations, we'll only be running 3 skillbuilders each week. Check back Friday for a new skillbuilder.

This skillbuilder is open for submissions until 11:59 PM PT on Thursday, May 15th.

Disney has unveiled a groundbreaking technology called the HoloTile Floor, the world’s first multi-person, omnidirectional, modular, expandable treadmill floor. This innovative floor allows multiple people to move in any direction on its surface.

Your Task:
1. First, watch the video about Disney's new HoloTile Floor to understand how it works and what it looks like. Notice how people can move around on it and how it could change the way we interact with virtual environments.

2. Think about different ways this technology could be used outside of Disney parks. Could it help athletes train? Could it make video games more interactive? Or could it be used in new types of therapy? Could you see a use for it at school or college?

3. Write down your best idea for a new application for the HoloTile Floor. Describe how it would work, who would use it, and why it would be beneficial. Keep your description clear and simple, so anyone reading it can easily understand your innovative concept.
