I just came across this video.
The creator is trying to combine miniature war gaming with head-mounted video projection glasses.
The video shows what you would see while wearing the glasses.
I could see this as an interesting add on to 40k.
It could also be of practical valve too, as in Line of sight issues or template placement etc.
Would you use this in a 40k game or is it just more bells and whistles?

Not a fan, sorry. For me, playing a wargame is not playing a computer game.

That's pretty cool, although it'd be hard to implement with anything other than single-pose models, to my mind, or at least with TLoS thats the case. Perhaps it'd work better with Fantasy? Still, pretty damn cool, and I'll be interested to see what ends up happening with this.

Looks like fun but cost i see being hugely prohibative the person/s you play with and against would all need to see what you see. The system would require constant updates as the rules change (at even more cost to the manufacturer who would never recope that cost with out charging for updates) etc... Your also placing them onto a large base making it more prone to getting hit.
