... Microsoft's patent application for an "immersive display experience" was published by the US Patent Office last week after being filed back in early 2011. It describes a standard video game system with a connected "environmental display" capable of projecting a panoramic image that "appears to surround the user."Such a projector wouldn't replace the central TV display used in current consoles, but it would provide a "peripheral image" that would "serve as an extension" of that primary display. The purpose, of course, is to extend the gaming environment outside of the TV screen, so a player could, for instance, "turn around and observe an enemy sneaking up from behind."The display device as described is integrated tightly with a depth-sensing camera system (read: Kinect) that could even be housed in the same casing as the environmental projector, according to the application. This device could be a standard two-camera, structured-light-sensing system like the current Kinect, or a more sophisticated model that could include "multiple image capture devices" to "stitch a panoramic image from a plurality of captured images" pointed in all directions around the room.Regardless of the form, the depth-sensing camera described in the patent application aids the environmental projector by sensing the layout and topography of the room. This allows the projector to provide color and distortion correction, so the projected images look correct even when cast against different walls and pieces of furniture ...Read more.
Yet-Another-Useless-Gadget, much like Kinect was to begin with. 'Nuff said.

Useless to gaming? No, not really. Game developers haven't figured out how to use it properly.

Who is this 'commoner' with no creative vision you speak of?Now for all you going "HURK DURK DURP YOU ARE SO DUMB AND STUPID, CAN YOU NOT SEE THE APPLICATIONS FOR THIS DEVICE OUTSIDE OF GAMING!?"Stop it and at least pretent to read the posts you are replying to.Kinetic is a useless and ****ty gadget when it comes to gaming.
