If I have a projector, an iphone with (basic) motion tracking, and a fast-ish computer running Unreal or something similar, has anyone figured out a way to make Mandalorian-style responsive backdrops on a tiny budget, by using the iPhone’s motion tracking, or something similar? Seems like it might be possible soon?

  • Soon? Definitely not. That tech has taken 25 years to make its way from the £20M cave systems for one person, to Vox, which is similar in cost, but makes it simpler for multiple persons+cameras. – Dr Mayhem Oct 26 '20 at 11:21
  • Wasn't there a hack for the Wii about a decade ago that did this? – Jason Conrad Oct 27 '20 at 3:44
