MIT Media Lab's project Infinity-by-Nine makes viewing ordinary video more immersive. This system projects extensions to the screen, taking advantage of the reduced sensitivity to detail in our peripheral vision. It creates a richer experience for viewers. It expands the home video viewing experience by generating imagery to extend the TV screen and give the impression that the scene wraps completely around the viewer.

Optical flow, color analysis, and heuristics extrapolate beyond the screen edge, where projectors provide the viewer's perceptual vision with low-detail dynamic patterns that are perceptually consistent with the video imagery and increase the sense of immersive presence and participation. They perform this processing in real time using standard microprocessors and GPUs. What do you think? Spatial 3D rather than clunky glasses?
