    What's your thoughts about Microsoft's upcoming tech? Are you excited or let down?

    I had this idea decades ago, something that would map your house and overlay virtual objects into it. I'm happy to see it finally becoming a reality.

    Imagine your entire house as the game environment, running around shooting things. Multiplayer where you all see the same virtual things. Not just your house, but there will be whole buildings where the games can be played by teams. Combinations of real and virtual effects to make the most immersive games ever.

    This is the next step for lazertag-type gaming. 10-15 years from now, this will be the new arcade.

    Yeah, it's pretty odd looking. Hope it improves on the 3D aspect.
