Does anyone remember a Nintendo demo from years ago where they dressed up an area of the E3 conference floor as a Zelda dungeon and they had this really cool (for the time) interactive floor?
Whatever happened to that? That was before the Wii was out. I remember some people were speculating that this was perhaps what the Revolution was about.
Nintendo even filed a patent for it in 2006 and they called "Floor Vision".
This suddenly came into memory this weekend after my family and I went to Old Navy and they had this new "toy" at the store. It's the same thing, a projected screen on the floor that when you touch it has an effect on it. This one had different games like Soccer, Basketball, Hockey, Golf as well as glass breaking, water effect and popping balloons.
I took a picture of my kids playing with this. check it out:
Also, here's someone else's video of it:
That Old Navy screen is pretty good since it does keep the kids entertained by the grown-ups do their shopping.
But I wonder. Is Nintendo behind this? is this their technology?
