Tadhg Kelly’s concept of an Augmented Game Area

This way several improvements could be enabled. Kelly exemplifies his solution in the following way:

“Its seems trivial, but think about it. How many action, roleplaying, storytelling and other games would be improved by having 30% more screen area dedicated to the game world? And how cool would it be to have lots of numbers floating in mid-space to the sides of the game rather than be hemmed in by constraints of the game world? Plenty.”


Now it’s your turn, enlarge your vision and think about new HoloLens scenarios!
