Microsoft has shown IllumiRoom, a proof-of-concept system at CES 2013, which uses Kinect and a projector to augment surrounding objects.
All objects around the television screen are projected through visualizations which can “change the appearance of the room, induce apparent motion, extend the field of view, and enable entirely new game experiences.”
A demo of the system is posted below, and was first outed via a patent application last fall.
More will be revealed at CHI 2013 in Paris on April 27.
