But I Don't Wanna TRON: Projection System Turns Your Living Room Into The Movie You're Watching

December 5, 2011


These are three videos showing off some crazy-ass video projection system that has the power to turn your living room into the movie you're watching. It's kind of hard to explain, so just watch and be amazed. Oooooooor entirely underwhelmed, you're a hard one to please. Oh, stop the presses -- I'm about to hit you with a quote. "Thats a sock full of pennies." You deserve this.

By attaching the PlayStation Move to the camera, we can track projections to screens in real time, enhancing the effect of spatial deformation and false perspective on the projections and allowing viewers to look round (virtual) corners, bend walls, create a hole in the wall, or remove the walls altogether to reveal vast expanses of virtual worlds.

Obviously this is a shot from the TRON themed video here, but there's a robotic future and pirate one as well. Me? I liked the pirate one. I'd pay upwards of $6 for a movie theater experience like that. "Too bad regular tickets are already $10. Where the f*** have you been?" Well home a lot, obviously.

Hit the jump for the worthwhile videos.

Thanks to Terry, who watches movies the way they were meant to be: butt-ass naked and with a bellybutton full of popcorn.

  • WOW! this is really cool and can't wait to experience this too :)

  • But I Don't Wanna TRON: Projection System Turns Your Living Room Into The Movie You're Watching. December 5, 2011 in 10-to-1 i would get motion sick and .

  • after watching those videos Ive concluded that the actors are just a little too amped about cheering and high fiving.

  • I watched all three. They're just adverts for the Playstation Store video store. No where is it stated that it's some fancy new projection system for your living room.
    Somebody has gotten all excited over nothing.

    Yeah... I'm finally noticing this 5 months after the fact and I'm sure the fact that the projection is changing based upon the location of the camera makes it look TERRIBLE from the POV of the actor.

    EDIT: And I now realize that someone else said this same thing 5 months ago... FML

  • Dylan Liebhart

    wow. no fucking shit.

  • I love you too. <3

  • That was awesome but I have to admit I was most amused by the watermelon on his head. :)

  • Soylent Green Is People

    What the fuck did I just watch?!

  • NES__still_the_best

    Is that dude in the first pic wearing a DEVO energy dome/planter hat, with a watermelon design painted on it?

    When I was younger, I used to dream of sitting in a virtual reality living room with half a watermelon on my head. Now that I've achieved my vision, let me tell you... it is exactly as glorious as I imagined.

    I don't think you're completely getting it. It only works for the camera that is filming the thing. The guy sitting at the sofa sees everything weird, with a wrong perspective. It WOULD work for you (and only you) ir you were to attach the eyeToy or kinect or whatever to your head. And it wouldn't be in 3D either way.

  • NinjaLlama

    Looks more like the Cerebro room from X-men instead of TRON.

    That is pretty sweet. I can't imagine how this can be applied to something like DDR.
