Default 'Illumiroom' system is like a Holodeck for your living room*

*sort of


Quote:
If you've ever wanted a more immersive gaming experience, this prototype from Microsoft Research should pique your interest. It uses a Kinect and a projector to extend the scene from your TV onto the room itself, enabling some mind-blowing effects.
It's called "Illumiroom," and as yet it is only a proof of concept (presented at the Computer-Human Interaction conference in Paris), but the idea is extremely compelling. First, the Kinect does a comprehensive scan of your TV setup — shelves, wall color, distance and all. The projector can then superimpose an image onto those items, either extending your screen or adding virtual elements to the room itself.

I've been drooling over this shit for months now.
Although, it was just today that I found out it's not built into the console and would be a peripheral device meant to sit on a coffee table, for instance.

Still... fucking Holodeck 0.1!!!

My invention is walls of a house that are all giant screens, and you can change the "wallpaper" on them any time you want. Actual wall colors, or scenes, etc. and you could fullbright them or not.

But of course, they could be used for full-room gaming as well. And heck, why not give them 3 d capability, too!

This is among my other inventions, which include the Smokeasy (for smoking inside your home without bothering anybody); the Dishwashing Dish Cabinet; the Zipsuit (a lightweight coverall you zip your kid into before she goes out to play in the red Georgia dirt); and the Sexsuit - a full-body virtual reality suit with many sensors which enables you to have realistic sex online, with zero risk of STD's! I believe someone finally came out with a very simplified version of this (a sort of remotely-activated vibrator, I think it was), which I believe was featured at an SL convention. I invented the Sexsuit about twenty years or more ago, but nobody has invented it yet.

Maybe they should call it Faux-Vroom (fake vroom!), or Fove-Room (as in foveal vision). Copyright 2013.

Microsoft says Illumiroom isn't yet ready for next Xbox, but will get public demo in July

I imagine IllumiRoom is most likely to come out a year or two after the next Xbox is released.
But I can see a lot of awesome uses for it when it does come out!

One of the things I keep thinking about is that effect where it looks like the room is affected by a shockwave or whatever.
The concept of the effect on the room itself alone is enough to make me want it.
Blurred if your dizzy/drunk/etc, shockwave for blasts and stuff, melting for tripping ...

I'm okay with them taking the time to get it right.
Just the fact that there's such an immersive technology headed to our hands is an awesome "we live in the future" moment.

I wonder how long it will take the Second Life sex industry to figure out a use for this?

Microsoft waiting until something is ready before releasing it? How weird is that?

Oh, I'm sure it's already figured out.
In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if someone with a dev kit already has something in the works!

Hey... sex drives tech, man.
