Microsoft Expands Gaming Past Our TV’s with IllumiRoom

Posted on the 14 January 2013 by Ningauble

Microsoft is up for neat stuff lately, this is one of them. Here’s a concept video of Microsoft’s IllumiRoom technology, which is a projection system that provides a more immersive gaming experience by filling the room with game-related graphics.

 

 

The system can change the appearance of the room, induce apparent motion, extend the field of view, and enable entirely new game experiences. IllumiRoom project was designed by Brett Jones, Hrvoje Benko, Eyal Ofek and Andy Wilson.

IllumiRoomis a proof-of-concept Microsoft Research project designed to push the boundary of living room immersive entertainment by blending our virtual and physical worlds with projected visualizations.
