Microsoft Patent Details Full-Room Gaming Experience With Wall Projections
September 11, 2012
Microsoft has been approved for a patent that could take gaming to a whole new dimension, allowing images from the TV to be projected around the room to create a 360-degree virtual display.
The company, which filed for the patent in March 2011, details a technology that would project a peripheral image onto environmental surfaces such as furniture and walls around a user. The focus would be on one primary image — for example, what’s highlighted in a game displayed on a TV — but projections around the room would serve as an extension.
