    A motion tracking camera next to the projector that's programmed to measure distance and to work off of cues within the projection. Basically the top of the projection would have some special color to tell it 'this is where the keyboard starts' and it would need to be programmed to be able to recognize when people were attempting to push down the buttons. Problem is that it would only work from one angle, meaning if you had one finger in front of the other you wouldn't have the second finger registering. Not a particularly huge problem with a keyboard, though. It could potentially use two motion trackers, one on each end of the phone, to work better, but then you'd need to program them to run in parallel.

    I would say 'almost' is accurate for projected keyboards, but not for holographic.

    Anyone seen the gadget show where Sansung made this "interactive window"? May be everything will become like that very soon.

    Yes it is a bit like the holo keyboards and such.

    Ah ok, I thought it would be something where if there was noticeable interference with the light, like a finger being on a key, it would register that and use it to represent a keystroke.

    Call me old fashioned, but I need pushback on a keyboard to type correctly.

    Yeah, I may could get by using a projected/virtual keyboard just for browsing use and stuff like that, but for typing documents and gaming, never could use a non-physical keyboard.

    The camera angle would be w/e angle you wanted, the scenes you wanted to watch are w/e you feel like participating in. This would give movies so much rewatchability. Finding easter eggs and "deleted" scenes would be fun too.

    Of course this VR stuff probably works better with games, but I can see movies going that way too.
    That would only work in games and simulations. What you describe is fundamentally different than a movie, i.e it's not a movie.




    Like others said, Virtual Reality and Quantum Computing are the next big thing.

    Virtual reality technology that puts you inside the movie.

    Imagine a movie that has one extra character every scene. A character that is meaningless to the plot, never says anything and never moves out of his place. A different such character for every scene according to the plot. And that character is the viewer in 1st person participating more or less.

    Imagine war movies where you are one of the soldiers. Your alter ego does things independent of your will but you see though his eyes and the main movie action is always nearby so you can participate.

    Aye. We've already gotten decent touch screens, now they just need to make the holo crap work and we're set.

    I would imagine sensory stimulation via electromagnetic frequencies and all that good stuff.

    Contacts.glasses with images (augmented reality) already exist and it is still part of the digital era, no real change in concept as the idea is the same as it was 100 years ago, just medium really.

    Already working on that and without the aid of porn. Though not of my own choosing.

    Yeah, I could see that happening lol.

    Though maybe a few would escape the clutches of endless VR porn, but not many.

    Nah, we will leave VR for five minutes and give a quickie. xD

    What I want is a combination of something like the Google Project Glass with a hypersensitive ear-mounted microphone. The Project Glass tech would be shrunk down to a contact lens, or kept as a pair of glasses if you don't feel comfortable wearing the lens, and the microphone would function like a set of ear buds. The two would be able to capture video and audio, essentially recording memories. These would be uploaded to a device that only you have access to. It would take social media to the next level, with people being able to share their experiences in the purest form outside of replicating the chemical processes in the brain.

    Virtual reality should be feasible pretty soon, given the level of computing power in most consumer level PC's and video game consoles. I would fully expect for the next console generation, or whatever follows after that, to have the hardware capacity required to make virtual reality come to fruition. We're already seeing something approaching VR with the Oculus Rift.

    hate to break it, but this is impossible, it would be allways at the same point so, your eyeball could move around like crazy but couldn´t see whats in the top left corner ^^

    the google glasses look pretty promising, guess smartphones and very small pc´s will become headsetstyle devices with maybe a processing unit in your bag or pocket

    Except your contacts will always be right over the pupil so it would literally be an overlay that could change based on your eye movements. Especially if you imbed an extremly small gyroscope or something to see different eye movements. I'm not sure how something like looking up to watch a bird would change what you are looking at on the contacts, however...

    I personally don't really see the appeal of virtual reality. I think augmented reality could be the next big thing; maybe not for games, but for practical purposes. You'd also have an excuse to wear Adam Jensen's shades, but remember, you did ask for them.
    If you are particularly bold, you could use a Shiny Ditto. Do keep in mind though, this will infuriate your opponents due to Ditto's beauty. Please do not use Shiny Ditto. You have been warned.

    We already have fully bionic arms and devices used for reading brainwaves. We honestly aren't far from cyborgs, especially as we age.
