[The Escapist] Microsoft Patents the Holodeck.

Microsoft has patented an "immersive display experience" that uses projectors to turn entire rooms into display surfaces.

Deep immersion into a videogame is great, but it can be tricky to achieve when you're sitting on a couch 15 feet away from your television. So Microsoft has an idea: expand videogames beyond the limits of conventional screens "by projecting a peripheral image onto environmental surfaces around the user.

They need to forget projectors and get to work on holo emmiters!

I think they need to forget about all of the above and focus on achieving 1920x1080 at playable frame rates first. I can only imagine the graphical fidelity of omni-directional projectors powered by a console... Current, next, or next-next gen...

Good luck with that. rolleyes.gif
