Microsoft has shown off a proof-of-concept Xbox system called IllumiRoom at CES 2013 in Las Vegas.
The system uses Kinect and a projector to augment the area surrounding the television screen with projected visualizations.
According to Microsoft, IllumiRoom can “change the appearance of the room, induce apparent motion, extend the field of view, and enable entirely new game experiences.”
The demo video below shows effects such as falling snow and explosions being projected into the living room. The video was captured live and is not the result of any special effects added in post production, Microsoft says.
