Star Trek Holodeck Realized With Playstation 3+Projector

Take one part puppetry with another part Star Trek: The Next Generation holodeck technology, and that roughly describes this Playstation Move+digital projector project. Yes, those are people in full body suits prancing about. A few more amusing videos of the project in action below, perhaps hinting at what may become of home entertainment in the near future...

Check out this guy's room totally change into the movie he is watching! No SFX, no post production, no cuts, everything you see here is 100% for real. We were funded by the Video Store of PlayStation Store to make a series of movie related videos using 'Immersive Imaging' which takes 3D projection mapping as its starting point, but gives the viewer a supercharged experience with the help of the PlayStation Move controller. In the past, projection mapping worked only from a single, static view point, and thus was very limited. By attaching the PlayStation Move to the camera, we can track projections to screens in real time, enhancing the effect of spatial deformation and false perspective on the projections and allowing viewers to look round (virtual) corners, bend walls, create a hole in the wall, or remove the walls altogether to reveal vast expanses of virtual worlds.
