Back in the early 90s we all expected that virtual reality was the immediate future of gaming. It hasn't quite worked out that way, but that doesn't mean some companies aren't still trying. Intel and Microvision have a new prototype (PicoProjector-Info.com), a game controller that includes a laser pico projector engine. This weapon-shaped controller projects images onto the gamer's surroundings so they can game with "an immersive, 360-degree feel."Right now the prototype is being demoed over at Intel's Extreme Masters PC gaming tournament in Alberta, Canada. With any luck, some images of this "weapon-styled" controller and the games it projects will be made available shortly thereafter.
See a video demo of the controller below. Via Microvision.
