The Illumiroom

This supposedly official video was just released last night, showing off a proof of concept system by Microsoft Research showcasing an alleged technology that would use projection mapping to augment the gameplay experience in correlation with the Kinect sensor using a variety of different methods. While the idea sounds novel, it's a duplicate of the same concept that Sony showed off back in late 2011 for Playstation Move.

Perhaps we'll be seeing a new breed of peripheral war once the next gen systems roll out this year, although I'm personally hoping that the Oculus Rift will take off and offer players the option of true augmented reality rather than visual gimmicks.
