RoomAlive can track multiple you and your weapons while you hit creatures, whack-a-mole style. Theres a game that requires you to physically dodge booby traps, with any failure resulting in a virtual bloody wound projected onto your body.

The procam units are as easy to install as a light fixture. Most projection mapping software requires the designer to calibrate the system by clicking on an image or waving a checkerboard. With RoomAlive, each procam unit is individually auto-calibrating and self-localizing. This means that the user just installs the fixture, and then a unified model of the room across all six procams is created with no user intervention.
