Comments on CirculaFloor - Smart Tile Holodeck?
The CirculaFloor is a computer interface; it consists of a set of movable floor tiles. As the user walks in a chosen direction, the floor tile maintains the position. (Read the complete story)

"Looks like a bulky contraption with too many wires. Can't they make it wireLESS?"

"I can see some issues with sudden acceleration and the necessary counter motion needed to maintain the subjects relative position. Likewise, other methods of movement, such as jumping or rolling, pose much greater challenges. This is particularly so with scenarioes involving sports or hand-to-hand combat, for example"

"it sounds great in theory but from that video it looks like it needs some work. I know that it is a prototype but the guy testing it looked like he was walking very slow. and I know that i cant walk that slow without going crazy but i cant speak for everyone but i think it needs some work on the speed of the tiles. other than that it looks great"
