Phil Spencer in a recent interview said he is trying to get PC game streaming to happen on the XBOX ONE thanks to Windows 10 coming out. Then with Steam machines coming out at the end of this year……things could get interesting.
The Augmented Reality Sandbox (orginally developed by researchers at UC Davis) lets
users sculpt mountains, canyons and rivers, then fill them with water
or even create erupting volcanoes. This version of the device at UCLA was built by Gary Glesener
off-the-shelf parts and good ol’ playground sand.
Any shape made in
the sandbox is detected by an Xbox Kinect sensor and processed with open
source software. It is then projected as a color-coded contour map onto the sand.
