IllumiRoom is a proof-of-concept that projects images beyond your TV for a more immersive gaming experience.

You don't need to spend thousands of dollars on the latest big screen TVs, instead you could be able to turn your wall into a giant projection screen with IllumiRoom. The proof-of-concept project from Microsoft Research uses a Kinect to adapt the on-screen action for the surrounding area.

It is being designed to push the boundary of living room immersive entertainment by blending virtual and physical worlds with projected visualizations.

IllumiRoom can change the appearance of a room, induce apparent motion, extend the field of view, and enable entirely new gaming experiences. It maps the appearance and the geometry of the room to adapt projected visuals in real-time without any need to custom pre-process the graphics.
