Nintendo Developing Holographic Video Game System

Nintendo is developing a ground breaking new holographic video system that should give it a leg up in the highly competitive world of gaming consoles. The new system utilizes a technology first developed at MIT and uses sophisticated software to render 3D images and bring a whole new reality to gaming.

The revoltionary system works first by using the beautifully rendered 3D images already present in games like Ghost squad and then the specialized software calculates a laser diffraction pattern which is needed to create the hologram. To create a full color spectrum image three different light interferance patterns are needed for each of the primary colors. The video signal is then sent into a light modulator, which is made up of a waveguide where light travels, covered by a piezoelectric material that converts the video signal into vibrations. The video signal bends the shape of the piezoelectric material, which actually changes the properties of the light moving through the waveguide. The light wave that is emitted is composed of various intensities and frequencies,that when projected can recreate a three-dimensional scene.

Nintendo’s Wii system has been unexpected hit with gamers of all ages and if the Holographic gaming platform comes together like Nintendo hopes it could put it miles ahead of Sony and Microsoft for the hearts and minds gamers worldwide.

We know they doing something with holographic technology by their investment in the company inPhase-tech (http://www.inphase-technologies.com/). They have reportedly already sunk 100's of million of $$$ in R&D, so if not a holographic console, could it just be holographic storage?

Is this the new thread we are using now?

This is very interesting, and I would love to see something like this only done by Nintendo. But could it have really gotten leaked? I really wonder what Sony and Microsoft are going to try to do next.

If it's anything like 3D movies i'm not gonna like it. well as long as theres no eye ware involved. I can't focus my eyes well with those dumb old things.

Do any of you techies understand this jibberish? Does it make actual sense?

It makes perfect sense.  They said it's awesome, like Ghost Squad.

Combine this with the sonic wave technology that you can "touch," and I'll have my Touch Daisy series games in no time.

Whoever has the license to Star Trek better get on this(holodeck), same with Lucas Arts for some Star Wars R2-D2 themed game. Nintendo is gonna be filthy stinkin rich if they can pull this off.

You know I bet they are developing something similar, or have at least played around with some related tech.  That said, this sounds like something way too expensive to release in the near future.  I wouldn't expect any gaming applications until after the actual technology is more mainstream.
