I think there's not much chance of this and that's some fanboys dreaming of some mystical shit like they always do, but this D'Fusion stuff looks rahter impressive. Basically at E3 2004 a french company demonstrated a technology called D'Fusion and its completely blown me away... its amazing. Basically it adds 3d models over a real world environment via a digicamera and some pc software.

Here's the video of it:

Look at the way the car bounces all over the place, that's pretty neat. I can imagine of loads of fun games that could be made by blending into the environment your working with (ie, platformer in your living room)

And the official sites:

I obviously spaced on this 2 years ago, anyone else heard anything about this stuff?


Shit hot :o

Yar that stuff would be cool for limited things , but the origianl like isn't a joke and is for somthing diffrent ArtificialReality, not argmented... the idea of the sphere is that you have full body free roaming device that allows you to walk, run and jump in a virtual world. Coupled with hydrolics for tactile feedback of slopes, shaking etc it could be very cool.

Also remeber those links of the "see though" materials... that stuff was invented for thiskind of product.
