MS Working on Breakthrough Interactive Display

CVG has the word about Microsoft's next technology that's supposedly being developed for the next Xbox console. This new gaming tech denotes a breakthrough device, currently referred to as the "environmental display," which was designed to project 360-degree game worlds across all four walls of a room utilizing advanced projection tech.

Reportedly, there's also a 3D depth camera that "can calculate the player's position by emitting infrared light patterns and registering where the player is blocking the signal." It's something that's described as very similar to the Microsoft's Kinect technology.

You can see more about the technology, complete with patent images that show a bit about how the device should work.

This could potentially unravel the power of revolutionary technology that may skyrocket us into proper next-generation gaming. On the other hand, it could open up a whole new world of 3D casual crap. I can see the exclusive titles lining up even now:

  • B&R 2 - 'Beat And Rape' your Xbox avatars in the privacy of your own living room 2
  • Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball 2 - Surround yourself by life-sized bouncing boobies and grope away.

Can't think of other specific ones at the moment, but I'm sure they'll spring to mind soon enough.

Microsoft continues to relegate itself to irrelevance.

This isn't revolutionary. It's not even that clever.

Hell they could be original and call it VISTA.
  Reikhardt: Oh, snap!

Kinect 360?
  Lazaroth: Must be.

Without treadmills, none of this matters. It'd be great for fighter games, but that's it. There's probably very few other awesome things that you can do with motion capture-based (like this) gaming.

Remember that Battlefield 3 video that came out of the UK, with the guy and the paintball guns and the dozen treadmills? Something like that is what I'd want from this.

But I digress, this is something I can't bring myself to get excited about. This is about as exciting as Battlefield 4. Battlefield 3, to be more specific.

Maybe it will be used to show a virtual XBOX that doesnt actually implode.

I don't have a room big enough to enjoy this environmental display. So I will stick with the PC for gaming :)
  Dean_Demon: Ha,that's almost funny
