Very interesting tech. I like the idea of being able to extend the view beyond the screen.
I don't know how practical it would be in most living rooms since it relies on a projector.

LOL you know, Oculus Rift makes all of that obsolete. ^_^

It is interesting that they are continuing development on this. I remember seeing it last year and thinking it was a neat idea, but that they would never end up doing anything with it... but if they are still working on it a year out then perhaps we may see some illumiroom tech show up in the next few years?
Also, love the Altoids tin they used to house their converter on the controller lol.

Give me this, a cooler and a port-a-potty and I fear I would never leave the room.

I actually think this is really neat, if but somewhat distracting for more intense gaming.

@aoneone LOL you know, Oculus Rift only allows for one person to view. ^_^
Other than that yeah, Oculus Rift is better.

One small step closer to the Star Trek holodeck.

I'm definitely looking forward to Illumiroom. It seems more practical than the Oculus Rift, and hopefully will cost less too. The Rift is cool, but I get the feeling based on previous experience that having screens that close to my eyes would give me a headache, as I'm very prone to headaches.
