Total immersion technology?

Is this a joke or is it real? You computer wizards need to explain that to my tech challenged brain.

Edit: it may take a couple of seconds for the "play" button to work.


Or you can check out "Smackfest '05" for pure entertainment!

I'm surprised Don King is not promoting this

Strange coincidence. I just ran into a spammer pushing this concept today at another site. It appears his posts were removed.

Where did you run into this?

I got this at http://www.compfused.com/ X.

The "bible singing video" thread was from the same site, I just found this in their "video" section. Similar site to Ebaum's world with silly stuff.

So do you think this stuff is real? It does look great, like mega holograms...

It's real - they held that conference down the street from me... If I had known about it, I would've tried to attend. The technology is really interesting, but I think the computers rely on the locations of physical sensors that are strategically placed and then pre-programmed and linked to each other so that it knows where real world objects are. CG generated objects do appear to react to visual cues though, but I think it may be a hybrid technology.

I have no idea. Just sounds like some buzzwords describing a second language program.

Looks to me like the same technology they use to put the ads on the field and the first down line in football broadcasts.

Exactly, it just needs a few points in space to give a steady line. Notice he has a wire running out of his shirt sleeve, which is probably the sensor that tells the computer where and how to place the object in the video space.
