Microsoft Illumiroom Blows Up Your TV

Written by Astounde on . Posted in Gadgets, Technology


IllumiRoom is 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.

IllumiRoom uses a Kinect for Windows camera and a projector to blur the lines between on-screen content and the environment we live in. Illumiroom can change the appearance of the room, induce apparent motion, extend the field of view, and enable entirely new game experiences. The effects in the following video are rendered in real time and are captured live, not special effects added in post processing.


A pretty cool concept, but if the technology already requires a projector, why not just buy a projector?
