One of the reasons why I do what I do is because I love the nifty things that technology can do. Such is the case with this “IllumiRoom” from Microsoft Research.
The IllumiRoom is an “Immersive Display Experience” that has a recent patent, combining augmented reality with the Kinect to create a way to blur lines between on-screen content. All I can tell you is just watch the video already.
I think we all know that video games are getting more and more player-immersed, as seen with certain devices like the Oculus Rift. I wouldn’t mind using this, but all its flashiness would be seen on the outside of my house.
