Motion Control wands coming to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter!

Later this year, the fine folks at Universal Studios Orlando are expanding their Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park. Now taking up a piece of both the original Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure, the Diagon Alley expansion will add a Hogwarts Express to dart between both parks, a brand new ride through Gringotts Bank, and a ton of new shopping opportunities. But - it turns out, that's not all. One of the most fun experiences at the parks has always been getting chosen for a wand at Ollivanders (pictured above with some lady), and it turns out, the wands are now getting an upgrade.
First noticed by Mattagins on Twitter, the following pictures show plaques that have popped up around Hogsmeade - the original Wizarding World park. The plaques are directions on how to cast spells with new motion control wands that will be added to the park soon. What will these interactive wands do? Well, there's plenty of scenery around that could become interactive. Imagine wandering through a park and making books float, or turning on a screaming Mandrake to annoy your friends. This may all be possible soon. More to come as it develops. What do you think of this new addition? Let us know in the comments.
