Microsoft IllumiRoom Projector Works With Next Generation Gaming Console

by on April 29, 2013

When your telly isn’t big enough, there’s IllumiRoom. Spotted by The Verge, a little thirty second video showcasing the tech has appeared online and details how it would interact with a “next-generation gaming console”:

“IllumiRoom envisions a next-generation gaming console with a projector that sits on your coffee table and surrounds your television with projected light. IllumiRoom can extend the gaming content out of the TV, creating a truly immersive experience. Or we can selectively show game elements, like explosions, or make it snow in our living room.”

Using Kinect to adapt to a room’s layout, IllumiRoom apparently changes visuals in real-time, reacting to what is happening on-screen. Basically, adding elements of the game on your walls and area surrounding the TV. This could possibly interact with older software too as Portal is mentioned in the video.

Will we see an IllumiRoom announcement on May 21? Maybe…

Update: Another, lengthier video showcasing the IllumiRoom has popped up online. You can take a look, below.
