So you'd rather socialize in a forum? Eh!

So, on topic, wouldn't a projector of that size and capability use an insane wattage?

I'm wondering what possible benefits this could have over a VR system like Oculus Rift. Maybe for multiple people it'd be useful, but only if it looked really good and nobody's shadow got in the way. Basically if it were a full holodeck (visual) experience it could beat a VR headset, in my mind.

I'm strongly doubting the ability to properly account for the room furniture.  That goes double if you have something like a dark brown suede couch...how the hell is a projector supposed to show up well on that?

I've seen BSODs in Times Square, but that would be a whole new level. :D

I was reading the following article and the comment quoted below made me think about the role of these types of interfaces in future titles.

Quote
Quoted from KevinM1
The elephant in the room is the ever increasing emphasis on motion controls and gesture controls. As a physically disabled gamer myself, this shift into a more 'natural' interface (natural for whom?) worries me. Gaming is one of the few activities I can engage in where I'm more or less on par with other people. Yet, all I see is an effort to leave people like me behind as technology progresses.

It's maddening, as despite the tech itself being used for adaptive uses - the Kinect is being used for some truly inspiring things - it will likely never be used in that way for games due to essentially no ROI for the developers.

It's something I've never thought of, that the trend towards natural interfaces while enabling a portion of the population, is also disenfranchising another.

Augmented reality will be a uh ... reality (lol) way faster than neural interface will be (if those will ever be ;) ).

Augmented reality is just a vague term...

I could say my corrective glasses are an augmented reality device.
People are stupid, therefore anything popular is at best suspicious.

When AR is finally working, I anticipate the entire Internet saying, "My reality is augmented." :P

[21:51] <@Droid803> I now realize
[21:51] <@Droid803> this will be SLIIIIIGHTLY awkward
[21:51] <@Droid803> as this rich psychic girl will now be tsundere for a loli.
[21:51] <@Droid803> OH WELLL.

See what you're missing in #WoD and #Fsquest?

[07:57:32] <Caiaphas> inspired by HerraTohtori i built a supermaneuverable plane in ksp
[07:57:43] <Caiaphas> i just killed my pilots with a high-g maneuver
[07:58:19] <Caiaphas> apparently people can't take 20 gees for 5 continuous seconds
[08:00:11] <Caiaphas> the plane however performed admirably, and only crashed because it no longer had any guidance systems

It is a vague term... but in essence it's no more no less than having a virtual overlay over the real world. Some phones with Cameras can already do that - to some extent - as a feature in some navigation and similar apps.

There are also already some location based games that use real map data and GPS to make you, for example, run away from virtual zombies in the real world... zombies which right now, you can only see by looking at your phone ;)

If those Google glasses are a hit it may be another exploding market spawning all kinds of gadgets and games.

I think this can go both ways. My dad is disabled, stroke, paraylized on the right side. He can't use traditional controls, but can use more "natural controls" such as the wii controllers. don't have a kinect, but I think that would work for him as well. So I think this depends on both the individual's situation. would it be possible for a third party to make a sort of  software/hardware "plugin" that would make it easier for disabled people to play?
