That's awesome.

I wonder if anything close to this will ever be main stream.

Thats pretty slick. Some day people be wearing a suit for true interaction of their environment! All the while giggling about how people used to game on desktops... :p

I doubt VR gaming will go down the projection route. Pretty soon we'll have head mounted displays that will be lightweight, comfortable, high resolution and fully panoramic. Add a motion tracking system to that similar to what we already have with Trackir headtracking and wiimote and you'll have total immersion.

Wow, that's damn impressive. Bit rough around the edges but shows a cool taste of what's to come.

That looks pretty awesome but I'd get pretty annoyed at how slow the turning response is. Imagine you're running away from someone in multiplayer and you run into the real wall? lol.

Im generally a very lazy person so standing up and moving about is out of the question.

I wouldn't feel like standing at all, especially with the shin splints I have right now..

Isn't that first one called a Cube room or something like that? I've seen them before.

The problem with either of those shown here is that there's no real advantage. You can't walk forward to walk forward, you'll run into the wall. Even Star Trek had to come up with some lame transporter excuse or some such to explain how the holodeck stopped you from running into walls.

It's far more likely that we'll have glasses-screens, or 180 degree wraparound monitors where we still sit down to use them. You need an interface to move around in a virtual world, and none of those interfaces involve standing.

Didnt they do kinda the same thing with the Source engine for some army simulation? Dudes stood in taped off boxes or something, had the image projected into some helmets, turned in the direction they wanted to go and walked in place croutched and all that. Was pretty cool.

I want some holographic 360' image spit right out into my room like teh Star Wars and be done with monitors and TV's :D

we need to have some kind of head gear that hooks the brain up to the system :p

Then you can walk and do everything in a virtual world.

Virtual Porn will then bring in the most cash in the world :lol:

but the hardware will cost more than the real thing.

Mind control is relatively easy ,I doubt if anyone would risk a neural link, just too dangerous.

That ocz thing is on my shopping list though.

As mentioned above...We will be able to buy that soon already from OCZ (and not a horrid price...$159). Some have said it is not easy to get used to though...
