Watch This: Microsoft demos IllumiRoom expanding the TV to the walls of your living room

Early today the Microsoft Research team revealed its latest project, IllumiRoom at CES 2013 in Las Vegas during Samsung’s press conference.

IllumiRoom is an awesome poof-of-concept that essentially expands the TV experience to the walls of the living room. As you can see in the video above, Microsoft shows a Xbox 360 console with a Kinect attached to it, and the concept is to scan the surrounding environment, measure it in real-time and project images across room and around the TV set for a more immersive gaming experience.

The effects in the video are rendered in real time and are captured live — not special effects added in post processing.

I am sure that I am not the only one who wants to use this interesting concept, but no word yet when IllumiRoom will be available. In the meantime, enjoy the video to get a preview of what Microsoft has in store for us in the near future.
