Sure, all the 4K TVs that are being showcased at CES 2013 are amazing, they come in sizes of up to a whopping 85” and wish to take over your wall, but who could afford a fancy TV so huge? Microsoft demonstrated a rather interesting display technology at Samsung’s CES keynote called the Illumiroom that can show you images beyond your regular TV screen.
Using a Microsoft Kinect for Windows camera and combined with a projector, the Illumiroom works by using the Kinect to scan the geometry of the room, so no, you don’t have to move your furniture out of the way. The projector then projects imagery beyond your TV screen, giving you a truly immersive gaming experience; you know how 3D ads always boasts bullets shooting past you and dragons breathing fire out of the screen? This will provide a similar, if not better and more realistic experience.
Unfortunately though, Microsoft isn’t demonstrating the technology in the floors of CES, but if you’re intrigued to see how it works, check out the video below.
