    Next Gen Xbox IllumiRoom Demo

    Reports suggest Microsoft’s IllumiRoom could be part of the next Xbox’s setup.
    The exciting concept, which uses Kinect and a standard projector to combine virtual and physical worlds, was revealed back in January as part of the company’s CES 2013 showing.
    A brief video arrived ahead of a Microsoft’s tech event at CHI 2013 tomorrow. As spotted by The Verge, the video indicates how IllumiRoom would work as “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,” explains the narrator.
    “IllumiRoom can extend the gaming content out of your TV, creating a truly immersive experience. Or we can selectively show game elements, like explosions, or make it snow in our living room.”

    Kind of cool... but this would be a $#@! in my room, and definitely start hurting my eyes like 3D does.

    You guys wanna know why I buy consoles?

    Yeah just can't see how it's going to work in a real world environment with furniture and stuff scattered around the place. Would be awesome if they did manage it though. I think the next big emersion things for games is going to be virtual glasses hell wasn't there even a rumour one of the consoles was going to launch with it. Seen some video on youtube and that tech seems to have evolved so much it now seems like a real possibility

    Using it to just increase the field of view doesn't seem very cool, but some of its other effects are interesting. I liked the snow effects, the lighting effects, and the ability to have certain objects come off the screen.

    I'm sure Kojima will use it.

    My biggest concern is rooms with windows. If there is light coming from outside is it going to make the things useless

    lol..hard to see how this reminds you of that. It's two totally different things.
    That looked realtime to me. It's definitely not fake. The question is, how much will it cost? Holodeck stuff isn't cheap.

    Cool that you think so. I still want to see it demonstrated live.

    The price prob wont be too high. It has to be consumer friendly.

    yea, this looks like something that certain games can really take advantage of.

    Think I'll pass, I'm happy with just a TV screen.

    The interesting thing is how will look with the Augmented Reality Glasses that were rumoured in the MS leaked documents.

    I would buy this in a heartbeat if the price was reasonable, but I doubt it will be.

    That's the main problem. For what it does it will most likely be cost-prohibitive.

    it could be expensive, but knowing MS they wouldn't be doing this if the price wasn't consumer friendly. Kinect 2 could be handling the bulk of it. Standard projectors aren't really that expensive anymore.

    There are some under 200.00 projectors out on the market. It doesnt have to be a hi-end projector.

    From my understanding, kinect + somekind of proprietary projector at the back of the room.

    Sounds like too much hassle for what is pretty much guaranteed to be a gimmick and only be used for a few things

    Yeah, there are too many variables for IllumiRoom to really catch on IMO. You need a coffee table, the windows closed, the lights off, a wall right behind the TV, etc.

    These technologies, like with motion controls, will continue to be awkward until we're literally in the game itself.

    Or they can let the tech mature and build it into the controller lol. Where Sonys light bar is, ms can add the projector plus Kinect sensor on the controller

    This seems sort of cool at first glance and gimmicky at the same time.

    I can see it getting real distracting, especially with setups like in the pictures shown.

    I'm not sure if the same health benefits as in ambilight would apply here? http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...-your-displays

    Last up there would be need for some sort projector which seems kind of costly.
