If you’ve ever watched Star Trek you have probably heard of the Holodeck. It’s futuristic technology that turns any room into a virtual environment. Microsoft has patented something very similar.
They call it an “immersive display exprieince.” Basically, your walls would become external displays. The main display, your TV, projects onto the walls around you. The example they use is a game where you can turn around and see an enemy sneaking up behind you. How cool does that sound?
