    I like it. I bet it doesn't work though.

    Cute. Needs work though.

    Could be quite good eventually I reckon.

    I'm certainly interested to see how well it works, it's a lot better than the rather silly Philips Ambilight thing.
  • Deleted user 9 January 2013 22:19:43
    It's just basically an extended version of that Philips Ambx shite. One of those expensive toys that basically ends up purchased by hardly anyone and supported by less. If it even ever gets released.

    Looks stoopid.

    Just like those ambilights were.

    Presumably you need a projector set up behind you to do that projection, so you'll need a room even bigger than you need to do Kinect (or have a projector that can do silly wide angles, I guess) - although given how crappy human peripheral vision is, I guess getting anything running outside the screen would be an improvement. And it'll need to be calibrated precisely to not project anything over your tv, which I predict will be a pita to set up.

    Still, might help people who get motion sickness from FPSes.

    Looks like it would be fucking awesome if you were on drugs.

    It's just a fancy projector isn't it, what's new about that? And it's still ultimately tethered to a TV, there's nothing really more immersing about it when you still can't move your head.

    Well I liked it.

    Apparently the one they used goes under your seat... and in relation to another comment, it has to do that "scanning room" bit... it genuinely does scan where the surfaces are so as to alter the image it's putting out.

    My first thought was "but surely in multiplayer it gives either an advantage or disadvantage, depending on how it's implemented?" I mean, if it gives you extra viewing space over being without it, that's a big aid, but if it's just the normal view spread wider then it's harder to see the stuff not on the actual screen.

    Basically, nice idea, not too sure it works.
  • Deleted user 10 January 2013 12:42:21
    It's a pretty rough image in your periphery that's addition to the normal viewing area. Any advantage it may gives in multiplayer would be miniscule. Is that the only reason you think it might not work? because a lot of people play singleplayer games too.
