Before it get going here is what Microsoft have to say about IllumiRoom : “IllumiRoom uses a Kinect for Windows camera and a projector to blur the lines between on-screen content and the environment we live in allowing us to combine our virtual and physical worlds. For example, our system can change the appearance of the room, induce apparent motion, extend the field of view, and enable entirely new game experiences.”
I have to admit over the last few years my PS3 has been gathering dust, only to be used for watching DVDs and streaming films. Video games just do not float my boat anymore!
After watching the below video, IllumiRoom could just the platform I need to get myself back into gaming. It takes sitting on your sofa with a game control in your hand, to a much more immersive artificial level. Microsoft’s IllumiRoom seems like the natural update the gaming world needs, to take it to the next level.
