An awesome Microsoft research project has been demonstrated this week, that has been designed to expand the gaming environment outside your TV and encompass the room you are playing in.
Microsoft IllumiRoom Kinect Concept projects game environment onto the walls surrounding your TV, providing a more immersive gaming experience. Check out the video after the break to see the new Microsoft IllumiRoom Kinect Concept in action.
“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. The effects in the video are rendered in real time and are captured live — not special effects added in post processing.”
” Our system 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. What you see in the videos below has been captured live and is not the result of any special effects added in post production.”
The IllumiRoom project was designed by, Brett Jones, Hrvoje Benko, Eyal Ofek and Andy Wilson. More detailed on the Microsoft IllumiRoom Kinect Concept are expected to be released at the CHI 2013 event in Paris on 27th April 2013. As always we will keep you updated when more information is released.
