The next-gen Xbox may come with a new way to play games. According to Eurogamer, it's rumoured the Illumiroom technology may come bundled with the console. Illumiroom uses the Kinect and a projector to overlay whatever happens in your peripheral vision on the walls. The rumours are a result of a video Microsoft has released in preparation for the Conference on Human-Computer Interaction 2013, which will be held in Paris. Check out the video:
The video shows, among other games, Valve's Portal being played using the Illumiroom. "IllumiRoom envisions a next-generation gaming console with a projector that sits on your coffee table and surrounds your television with projected light," says the narrator. "IllumiRoom can extend the gaming content out of your TV, creating a truly immersive experience. Or we can selectively show game elements, like explosions, or make it snow in our living room."
