IllumiRoom is a proof-of-concept Microsoft Research project designed by Brett Jones, Hrvoje Benko, Eyal Ofek and Andy Wilson, to push the boundary of living room immersive entertainment by blending our virtual and physical worlds with projected visualizations.

By combining a Kinect camera and a projector, IllumiRoom augments the area around your television to increase immersion in the game you’re playing or the movie you’re watching.

The effects in the video are rendered in real time and are captured live – no special effects are added in post processing.
