A cool new toy from the tech in Sony. Would be real cool if that could be used in gaming.
4D? Lets hope that MS doesn't copy and put a Milo in there /XD
4D IS A BIT TOO HARD TO UNDERSTAND BUT ANYTHING BETTER THAN 3D IS ALLOWED TO CALL IT SELF SOME NUMBER AWAY FROM 3 ETC
I thought the 4th dimension was time...
There is no 4th dimension as it has no actual depth, only the illusion of depth Anyways, this technology looks really cool, especially the rotating Earth. It would be a sick peripheral. Sorry if my imagination is limited, but I cant really see this in gaming. But I can imagine using it in a dozen other places
I'm telling you, were prob only 50 years away from the machines takin over.
I think natal just got pwnd!
now thats innovative it would be pretty amazing for puzzle games
now that's pretty cool. @ NoBias, I'm afraid it's already too late.
Sony only does everything.
I wonder what the RROD looks like in 3d? If M$ copies, we'll find out :P
Amazing, just imagine how this technology can benefit the future of gaming and entertainment.
Every format that became popular had porn backing it.
@edwineverready Porn would be classified under entertainment.:)
Or the next xbox. Just beginning tech. Im sure the cost is high.
I dont think it will ever be the "mainstream" at least not in this state, it's technically impractical, you can have no built up scenary, only flat vistas to allow 360 degree veiwing of the subject. Example, if your inside a town or city, it could have no backdrop. This stands true with both games and media (TV,films) in general. It's more likely to be used for marketing or promotional media. As well as practical field like medicines or education.
Actually it could be used for Large scale Emulations, While this might seem a little far fetched, anyone who has played star ocean 3 might get the idea of a simulator room, Just think of this little box just 100ft by 100ft instead, This would actually be a great Idea for Large scale game. But the downside would be the price, XD it would be so expensive In our time, but maybe at sometime it would be cheap enough to be put to practical use.
If they can somehow incorporate this tech into a flat panel tv, and much like samsungs and mitsubishis no glasses 3d televisions can wow people then its a seller. I think this is just a tech demo has no real market potential especially not for gaming.
Just think how this would help medicine and not to mention the porn industry.
Ha, when I first saw this, a week or so ago, the first thing came to mind was, pornography. What does that say about me? ;)
Wait, I remember holographic games at arcades like 15 years ago, wtf?
Its not holographic, i know the games you were talking about and they were crap CD ROM based games which were still just a 2D image with an illusion of depth. This is 3D in the sense that you can actually walk around it and view the subject from any direction. so if you were looking at a girl face to face then you could walk around the display and see the back of her head.
Woah that's cool.
They only do everything.
This technology would be amazing in hospitals actually, especially for displaying 4D radiographs. I'd imagine if it were cheap and the computer processing was fast enough, they'd pop these all over in replacement of 2D CT images.
its only a matter of time tell sony brings holograms to gaming. Playstation 5 maybe?
There are 6 dimensions there may be more scientist dont know yet. High lvl math i cant do lol.
Umm the science channel had a special on the 11th dimension not to long ago, so there is more then 6.
According to string theory there are 11 dimensions. But that's just theory...for now...
this'll be good for tetris and porn....
actually thier are 10 demensions
EXCLUSIVE TO SONY PLAYSTATION 3 :)
Wow that's amazing! Sony again with the tech! you all should check out Sony's HD picture zoom. Where you can zoom into a picture in a picture in a picture, hidden in a womens ear ring i the picture and blow it up to full HD. Sony technology is just amazing
Sonys R&D is awesome
Cant wait hahaha but ya SONY is awesome. cant wait for the OLED TV do go up in size and down in cost :)
As useful as a chocolate fireguard atm but will be useful later on as technology develops.
PS3 IS PASSED WITH 3D! IT DOES ONLY EVERYTHING! SONY DOES ONLY EVERYTHING!
You gotta give it up for the Japanese
Always innovative and ready to try something new.
