HP Mscape gaming handheld revealed

Today in New York City, HP revealed "for the first time outside of the lab" a concept handheld for the company's Mediascape (or "Mscape") gaming software. The handheld has been sighted before, though - specifically in an HP commercial shown earlier this year at a technology summit.

As seen in the video, the concept with Mscape is that the handheld's screen acts kind of like a lens through which the real world is rendered just like a video game. For example, holding it up to a part of the street may reveal a virtual crater where the ground should be. It's not actually rendering the environment in real time; Mscape cues up the proper graphics when prompted by sensors on the device, including GPS.

This really looks nice and all but I wonder how many people will really want to go around and see what they can make for a game over just playing a game in there house instead. I will say this is a nice idea and I bet sounds great on paper but at the end of the day you can't help but wonder how it will really work and how well sales will be. I do wish it look because the idea really looks to be a breath of fresh air.
