Yea this was at the Zelda TP display at E3. This thing was really fucking cool, I wish I had one in my house. I've seen some other places do this, like at sam good they have one of these at the entrance when you walk in the door, but it sucks really bad and it only plays sam goody propaganda and it's not very responsive to the touch.

Anway, the zelda one at e3(the one from the video you posted) had a bunch of projector type things shooting that image on to the floor, there was no screen at all, it was all projected right onto the carpet. This technology would be interesting for a game, though it would only be cool if it was a responsive as the nintendo one was.

Yep thats from the Nintendo booth at E3. Seems like something that will be dealing with the Revo.

That is pretty darn neat. Too bad it's projector based. Though I suppose if the projector was at an oblique angle it wouldn't get blocked by the user as much.

If this is released as a Rev accessory(which I doubt), I forsee a lot more fit gamers.

They have games like this at the Science Museum in London, England. They're pretty cool

That video is very dark and grainy, so I had trouble making out exactly what was goin g on. Can someone please explain what I am seeing here? :-) It looked like they were touching water that wasn't really there and it was rippling.

Revolution? I doubt it.

The Sam Goody over here has one of those. They use it to display all sorts of advertisments (none of them Nintendo related), and a fun little air hockey game.
