It apparently "uses the appearance and the geometry of the room (captured by Kinect) to adapt the projected visuals in real-time without any need to custom pre-process the graphics.

Microsoft and Samsung demo Illumiroom display..
This is really cool. I remember seeing this patent. I'd want it to project at least a reasonably clear image though. The vid kinda made it look distorted some times (I know it's a concept vid but still).

That is amazing! WANT WANT WANT!
I am not sure if it is playable for a few hours. 3d of ps3 amazed me like that when i heard first but i never played any games after my first try.#lovegaming
Stop preordering games! Stop buying day1 games! Stop being idiots!

Oh it's playable. I would have that $#@! on 24x7.
It is pretty awesome, something i will use ( it can maybe be used for the peripheral vision, that would be epic).
I don't get how kinect is able to do that, does it need a projector or something? Very weird.
Do i see myself using it a lot, probably not but it is better than the other stuff, like 3D.

i am not buying this at all.Plato and Aristotle, a detail of The School of Athens, a fresco by Raphael. Aristotle gestures to the earth, representing his belief in knowledge
This would be cool but how will they deal with differing colors on walls? A lot of that wouldn't project well on dark colored walls.

Its not really realistic guys, its pretty cool, but think about it.
First you need the kinect sensor to be facing the wall you projecting on to.
Next you also need a projector facing that wall in the same location.
The only way it would work is some sort of combined projector/kinect sensor all built into one, attached to the roof or on your coffee table.

Hang on a tick, its samsung as well, well in that case, yes I can see Samsung incorporating kinect tech into a projector.
The trick for the xbox would be dual output.
A projector like this would allow you to project onto any distorted surface perfectly for any source.
The xbox would simply supply a 2nd graphics output for the game, projector would do the rest.
Looks like playing in 120+ degree FOV.
The first( Project Natal ) concept videos come to mind instantly when watching this, but for this idea to work best the area around the TV should be blank white wall.
