Multiscreen setups for PC gaming aren't new, but MIT Media Lab's Infinity-by-Nine system may take the idea to a whole new level.

The system generates real-time blurred pictures of a video and then projects them separately onto three big screens (refer to the above image) using ceiling-mounted projectors. This visual extension of the original content is said to produce a more immersive viewing experience by relying on the reduced sensitivity to detail in users' peripheral vision.

No commercialization plan for the Infinity-by-Nine system has been announced yet, but the research institute claims it can be easily adapted for home theater, gaming, and telepresence applications.
