Microsoft IllumiRoom brings a more immersive gaming experience to Xbox; proof-of-concept video inside
Microsoft Research has been hard at work on a very interesting piece of technology that will impact the way we play games in the future.
We first caught a glimpse of the tech, now known as Microsoft IllumiRoom, back on September 11, 2012 when a patent application for the project was discovered.
Microsoft IllumiRoom scans your room, identifying obstacles and dimensions, and then projects images in the background, essentially increasing the viewable playing area by several fold and creating a much more immersive gaming experience.
IllumiRoom was shown off for the first time during Samsung's keynote at CES 2013. We can expect to hear more about the product in April. Until then, have a gander at the proof-of-concept video of Microsoft's IllumiRoom which we've posted below.
