Tim Ferriss Blog - Revisited

 
 

Experience foreign cities and world cultures in real 360 with Google's incredible Holodeck, which I had a chance to experience while at the Google I/O conference in SF. Can you imagine a first-person shooter (FPS) game for this?

If they released the software for that it would be completely worth it to buy the 6 monitors it would take to recreate that.

That seems a bit too fast.

Idea for your next book... The Four Hour Holodeck: Escape reality, travel at the speed of light, and join Captain Picard in the 30th Century.

I tweeted you about this, anyway.

Maybe, You should take a trip to see Kaust's Cornea project.

from http://www.kaust.edu.sa/about/presidents-speech-kfupm.aspx

Partnering with the University of California in San Diego, KAUST will also be home to one of the world's top visualization labs, dubbed Cornea. Cornea will boast:

* Twenty four of the world's highest native resolution projectors
(4096 x 2160 pixels each)

Ideo Labs have created something similar with sterogoggles to give a completely emersive experience. The way the guy reacts to the experience is priceless. You can tell how real it feels for him.

That's really cool. But not as great as virtual reality caves with 3D glasses.

I am working on software for such a cave at university. That really kicks ass, even if most of the software looks like old computer games from before 2000 ;)
(It's developed by a research institute, they don't care about the look).

There are some snapshots on the website, maybe you wanna have a look:
