I saw this on another website so I thought I would post it to see what people thought.....

[color=#333333][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif][size=3]With such a thing like this how feasible is it? I mean for the projection and depth cameras.[/size][/font][/color]
[color=#333333][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif][size=3]Is such a thing even possible (no ancient alien references please)?[/size][/font][/color]

[color=#333333][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif][size=3]o Xbox Next (designed out of the box for HDMI, 3D, maybe multiple GPU's)[/size][/font][/color]

[color=#333333][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif][size=3]The Fortezla Glasses in that Xbox 720 document were in September 2010, the information above was applied for a patent in the 1st Quarter of 2011. [/size][/font][/color]

[color=#333333][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif][size=3]I saw a Sony video camera with a pico projector built right in with the camera, wouldn't this be too expensive to even offer by itself even if it was low resolution?[/size][/font][/color]

Well, I did check it out in an article but it couldn't do your entire body like Kinect can. It can do head tracking and stereoscopic rendering however you have to wear something heavy on your head.

Not necessarily. Even with Kinect you could probably find a way to accurately track where someone is looking or facing and just render accordingly. No need for headgear.
