Yesterday at CES Microsoft introduced it’s new, but mysterious IllumiRoom concept, which looks to turn your gaming cave into a 4D thrill ride. It’s a pretty far out concept but based on the trailer below, which MS confirms to be a real-time tech demo; I think I could get behind it. The IllumiRoom seems to be some sort of display technology that transposes parts of the game world in your chosen gaming room to turn it into a more immersive environment.
Call me crazy, but I think gamers will take to something like the IllumiRoom over the Kinect. Although, as with most things, it will all depend on the price. I expect to hear more from MS as 2013 passes, so when I do I’ll make sure to update EB Nation. In the meantime check out the IllumiRoom in action after the break. You’ve been liking this Xbox holodeck idea…
