The contraption in the video below is called the HoloDesk, and uses a projector, a Kinect and a 'beam splitter' to create the illusion that you're manipulating 3D objects below the sheet of clear glass.
this would be great for card based games, i.e. pokemon, yugioh, etc. you would be able to see the monsters, attacks and everything
oh wait .. they did on PS3 a while ago http://www.youtube.com/watc... Eye of Judgement
I love the disagrees, as if Eye of Judgement somehow doesn't exist or doesn't use a camera to tell what you're doing with cards lol.
i know, i've seen that before. but this is different. you have to look up at a screen to see your monster. in this concept, you are still looking down at your table, at your real hand and at the actual card. as opposed to looking back and forth for a graphic.
Dang.. soon: The Matrix style gaming :) Wish I was born 200 years from now (in a rosy future of course).
I agree with you. If there is a way to add this and that massive gaming room that was created for bf3 that is on the UK habit show soon there could be some very interesting games made from it. ms are onto a winner with the kinect technology.
Pretty impressive stuff. I can't wait to see what the future have in store for us in regards to technology in general.
for the PSeye it was Kinect so maybe for Kinect it could be PSeye 2 with a 3D camera
I'm all for advancement. :)
If only they could make the user feel the object we would be one step closer to a HoloDeck. I knew Star Trek had all the answers.
I can see it now... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Ubisoft and Rare should really move onto hardcore titles ubisoft put out power up heroes and despite the reviews on controls it seems to work pretty well. Its like its moving and advancing and is trying to move into the hardcore market but are fine tuning their skills with kinect on casual games. Im going to try and work on my own kinect game soon hopefully and release a demo that implements most of my ideas and possibly send in something to Microsoft.
sweet jesus, that incredible. i am literally speechless after watching that video. the fact that most people in here are just writing it off is astounding. although thats most likely only because its got the word kinect and the initials MS in the title. replace them with sony and playstation and youd be jumping up and down like school girls.
