    Microsofts Illumiroom Too Expensive To Release

    For an average customer its, like, thousands of dollars.

    Microsoft says Illumiroom is unlikely to be released, as it would be too expensive for consumers.

    Speaking to AusGamers, Xbox One head of product planning Albert Penello explained that Microsoft likes the tech, but the cost would be prohibitive.

    I wouldnt expect youll see that, Penello said when asked if were likely to see Illumiroom greenlit for release. Its very, very cool tech but its, like, for a consumer, it requires projectors and things. Its really super-neat if youre in the lab and youve got Microsoft money and you could totally set up this awesome lab, but... we looked at it, but for an average customer its, like, thousands of dollars [for the set up]."

    Illumiroom was unveiled at CES and, along with a Kinect and projector, augments the area surrounding a television screen with projected visualizations to enhance the traditional living room entertainment experience.
