Remember the Xbox IllumiRoom? A Kinect-assisted projection that allows a video game's graphics to jump out of the screen? Well it just might see the light of day according to Microsoft Studios head Phil Spencer. Spencer warns however, that a unit would cost consumers "thousands of dollars."
The video above is a demo of the IllumiRoom from Microsoft Research designed to "change the appearance of the room, induce apparent motion, extend the field of view, and enable entirely new game experiences," but says the demo above represents a five to ten year look into the future.
"I love our relationship with Microsoft Research," Spencer continued, "but I don't know if IllumiRoom is a feasible thing in the home. There are a lot of things going on at MSR that we're plugged into, and that's just one of them. But I get asked about this so much, I wonder if it would be worth setting up a demo at a show like this and seeing what people think."
Lets keep our fingers crossed for another sneak peak of this holodeck beta.
