Microsoft presented the IllumiRoom concept during the Samsung keynote at CES 2013. The concept brings the visuals of video games out beyond the boundaries of the television. The IlumiRoom is currently a part of the proof-of-concept system, connected with the “immersive display experience” patent Microsoft applied for in 2011. The patent describes a system which brings a “peripheral image” from the television screen into the room occupied by the gamer. It integrates a Kinect for Windows camera and a projector, and is thus able to bring certain elements of individual games into your living room. The camera scans your personal space to capture the dimensions and geometry and then the projector utilizes these parameters for displaying images. These include an extension of the playing area and unexpected effects such as snowflakes or sparks. This stunning system might become a competitor of the other virtual reality systems such as the Oculus Rift and Sensics SmartGoggles gaming headsets.
