I don't see why any reason it wouldn't work with TIR, as all TIR does is move the camera when you move your head, and doesn't really provide a peripheral affect at all. I'm talking about how you have a relatively narrow field of view that is in focus, and a much broader peripheral field of view that isn't in as great a focus.

Anyways the main problem I see with an eyefinity setup is that it's relying on the devs to code for it's usage, and most don't. Whereas the projector has it's own software and presumably works with most anything.

Anyways the biggest problem with the projector for this type of application is that it would have to be arranged in a very certain way to function properly on a PC as it's likely to be behind the user.


When you move your heads around chances are your field of vision is going to shift to the edges of the screen. Because of this IllumiRoom it might break the immersion since you'll notice that the projection is fake; where Eyefinity multiple monitors could at least compensate.

Then again, it's just all speculations..


You realize that TIR makes use of very small movements right, and that it's not 1 to 1? Because your head movement is pretty much negligible and you can still focus on the centre of the screen. Or are you saying that you can't move your head one way and your eyes the opposite?

Lavarinth confirmed for microsoft shill.


Oh stop it. :hah:

I haven't even turned my Xbox on in over a year. I think I'm nearing two years, actually.

Nope. I have a PS3 or Wii U for that.

The only game I used to play a lot on Xbox was Rockband.. When it was relevant.

neat, but it will probably be extremly overpriced and not worth the money for some special effects. Especially, since games degenerate more and more into interactive movies. I only see this as another small step towards the startrek holodeck.

Except Metal Gear Solid 4, which was a combination of a trilogy of movies and a complete game. My god that game was long.
