Taking Xbox 720 over your living room

New Microsoft technology will make your living room into a game

The technology fair CES in Las Vegas this week put a opportunity to demonstrate a technology they patented last year. The technology is called Illumiroom and projecting images around a television set, so that the image on the screen is extended in all directions.

Kinect 2?

According Pressfire.no technology was demonstrated on stage at Samsung's press conference at CES, and has been named Illumiroom. In the video below you can see how the TV image expands on walls, ceilings and floors in that images are projected in all directions. Thus, the living part of the game, and the empathy should be greater. Right now it is not confirmed what technology will be used, but it is likely that it may end up in Kinect 2 or Xbox 720, and that this will be a unique selling point for Microsoft's next console, which many believe will be launched this fall. Here you can see a video that demonstrates Illumiroom. According to Microsoft, this is recorded live, effects will be added in the editing process.

Is this the future of console gaming?

Effects like the Snow, the Flames, and other stuff like that are fine. But expanding the actual FoV will just give an unfair advantage in gaming.
