Where can I buy such a setup? Can I add some Augmented Reality to brush up the visuals?

I can already see. A looping background HTML Video element with WebGL elements transformed and layered on top.

See this motion tracker demo in Firefox nightly build. What if the video source is a webcam input from over the stratus p2p network? Could there be a game which could detect the opponents face gestures? 🙂

See this tracking realtime demo.

Multiple object motion detection

Applying the tech above a multiplayer game could look like this:

In the picture above the following items are distinguishable:

  • Laptop
  • TV or a PC with a large screen
  • Mobile Device
    • Location and orientation awareness
  • Camera
    • Face Gesture Recognition
    • Motion Detection
    • Augmented Actor or Marker Detection
  • Microphone
    • Voice Recognition

In the end you will have multiple displays. A widescreen TV, your personal mobile device and the space visible to the camera.

This is what all web pages should be like. Well animated and with sound effects!
