Beam me up Scotty :lol: !

No way this could be a NextBox feature or USP, unless its to go with your $25k Sony TV, right?

Ground-breaking Xbox 720 tech could turn rooms into 3D envir

Sounds cool but there's so many obstacles that could mess this up- one of them being the sheer amount of room you'll need. My new flat has me moving the sofa if I want to use Kinect already. And what if your room is full of stuff? Will picture frames hanging on the wall interfere with it? Windows? Etc

Still, it exciting stuff - if we can't have hover cars and robots that make us dinner then I'll settle for a holodeck type technology.

How would this work outside of a white square room. It sound like interesting tech but I don't imagine many people being able to take full advantage of it. Surely most people have furniture in their rooms.

This could be really cool (though I suspect it will be years until we see it) but I get the feeling we'll only see it used for crappy games. Microsoft need to get their gaming focus back, when they concentrate we get great new IPs like Halo and Gears of War, at the moment it just seems to be Kinect games and patents for things that are years away.

Imagine the processing ability needed to render this level of detail and depth in real-time.

Now this is innovation! lol

Bring it on, though please, wearing glasses when gaming for prolonged periods is not good :*(

I would happily move house just to get this set up!

Sounds a nice idea, but what happens if your in laws stroll into the room unannounced ? Will a Promethean Knight attack her ?

Fine by me !

It's a bit like those TVs that projected different coloured lights behind them to add atmosphere to what you were watching, only this is a little bit more advanced(I doubt it'll be more than low res visuals, but still, it should work quite nicely)... :D
