The idea of an ‘immersive display experience’ is nothing new. It has been around for a long time, popularized by the likes of Star Trek in science fiction. In recent times, many hardware vendors have tried to create one. Microsoft may also be gearing up to jump the bandwagon. One of its patents speaks about a Holodeck-like immersive display experience.


Immersive display experience

The basic idea behind this ‘immersive display experience’ is to make games a lot more interactive. To do this, the patent describes a system which frees the game from the confines of a single display. It means that while you will still be able to watch the game on a given display, you will also be able to have projected images around you, in 3D, making you feel as if you were ‘in’ the game.

The display device, the patent says, will be closely integrated with a depth-sensing camera system which would be able to put together multiple images and then help in projecting them in a panoramic fashion around the room. Microsoft probably has Kinect in mind when speaking about this camera system.

However, the panoramic images would be projected by an environmental display which would be coupled with the camera system. The camera system would help the environmental projector in understanding the position and topography of the room .

As exciting as it sounds, all of this still comes from a patent. And while Microsoft may be readying it up for its game console, it may still be a few years before we get to see this in real.
