Latitude and creativity without limits – that’s what Reddit user nick8807 might have thought when he created his own augmented Borderlands mock-up for Xbox One.
“Just an idea I had in my head. Off screen HUD and inventory that dims when your eyes focus on your TV. Rough mock up. Let me know what you guys think.”
Actually the mock-up is very similar to Tadgh Kelly‘s idea of AR used as an augmented screen. The mock-up shows a simplified method to choose weapons and to improve the overview and understanding of the game. In fact, the actual screen would be dedicated 100% to the game world.
Gamingbolt‘s Ravi Sinha thought about similar features adding that
“It’s interesting because it allows you to automatically select weapons from your backpack, listen to custom soundtracks or start a party – all without having to leave the actual game. Though it’s just a mock-up, it represents the potential of HoloLens for commercial games in terms of functionality, ease of use and even custom functionality.”
