    Btw, it is not about 3D, thus, no need for eye tracking. It is more about panoramic experience. And there is one part they didn't show you, but, I think it reconstruct the room in real time as the video claimed. Meaning, if your cat walks over, the image will adjust to your cat. Obviously it is overdone, but, since MS research already have such tech, they just reused it. and I loves the shockwave effect. Had to keep replay it to make sure they are not faking it.

    Leaving WM on 5/2018 if no apps, no dedicated billboards where I drive, no Store name.

    Anyone even suggesting it's the same thing is either insane or deliberately trying to be a negative nancy.

    And anyone suggesting Microsoft built a smartphone before the iPhone must be equally insane or deliberately trying to be a negative nancy.  Perplexed

    If we all believed in unicorns and fairies the world would be a better place.

    So, mental problems then. Awesome.

    The whole illumiRoom would just be a rear projector, and only games with built in functionality(e.g. ones that allow Kinect, 3D....special code)...would "talk" to the projector. A game with snowflakes would have elements it sends to the projector (e.g. a 2nd special HDMI output on an Xbox 720).

    Not saying it's easy. It's just "extras" a game would have.

    Or the DIY version (not quite as sophisticated, but cool none the less):

    @felix9: Altoids! Of course! Why didn't I think of that! Smiley

    The snow falling onto the cabinet and rolling off when the player accelerates is amazing. If they manage to put this in the new Xbox they've got a killer feature.

    Heh, in fact, this video has not been officially 'published' yet, Google only found this link after I posted it here, and Bing still knows nothing about it. Devil so its 'exclusive' news. Wink
