OXM - What if the elephant in the room actually was an elephant in the room?
Teehee at the Battlefield one.
Looks stupid and is something u would have as an add on to a next gen console at best.
have you seen the video of holodeck, not stupid at all http://www.projectholodeck.... as you can see it uses the rift as well thats make you completely immersed into the world, but I do agree that this should be a choice rather then a primary controller.
it looks stupid because sony isn't doing it, right?
i doubt it's the next xbox if they're using a move controller on their head...
I don't know any gamer that games in a window-less, furniture-sparce white room, so I doubt the full effect of this can be taken advantage of. And I can't expect that something like this would come cheap.
The only rooms i've heard of that meets those requirements are padded cells. LoL
No one including Microsoft, has tried the whole VR room thing. Couches, Pets, outside noises, and besides the environment, there's how well it projects on the walls to create an imersive feel
I think they probably use the holodeck that these students are using instead of the one they came up with.
I don't know what you guys are talking about, that "holodeck" in the link whoyouwit04 posted is just a VR helmet, bit like the horrible Virtual boy of yore (I know, I played the damn thing back then!), it certainly doesn't project videogames or movies on the wall, much less on four walls and everywhere in the room to recreate a living and breathing 3D world you are actually a part of. That would be great, but it probably won't happen before 2135, lol.
I look at it like holy hell , this going to be fun if done right.can't wait.
Here is the actual patent: http://ip.com/patfam/en/467... It sounds pretty good from what I read. It projects images onto the wall to give you a more peripheral vision in addition to your TV's display. I don't think the images will be highly detailed, as there are many different colors in living rooms. It could help you with people sneaking up from your sides in a shooter and give a little extra chill with a horror game. It is basically trying to make it more immersive. Also, I read in the patent that the camera that accompanies this (obviously an upgraded Kinect), will do eye and finger tracking presumably from a nice distance.
