Movie fans and gamers, hold on to your seats. MIT's Media Lab has developed a way to immerse movie watchers and gamers into their experience.
Taking advantage of a viewer's peripheral vision, the system creates a 3-D synethetic light field that is projected onto walls and celings. Our brain blends the movie or game in front of the viewer with the light field on the walls and ceilings into one seamless, immersive experience.
Viewers say they feel included into the story and even cinestheitc effects, such as feeling the heat from on-screen explosions.
