I’ve been looking forward to the day that we can print TV screens onto wallpaper and transform an entire wall into any view you chose.
The folks at RationalCraft decided not to wait and improvised with a couple of standard 46″ plasma screens and a clever implementation of place tracking using a Wii remote – it’s called Winscape.
As you move around the room (wearing an infrared transmitter), the scene changes – giving you the impression you’re actually looking out of a pair of windows.
There will be a market for high-definition (min 1080p) real-time camera feeds – and they’re going to need a lot of broadband. Here are some views I’d be ready to pay for …
The next step for Winscape is to do away with the IR transmitter by utilising the magic of the Kinect.
