Microsoft’s IllumiRoom is a coffee table projector for the next-generation Xbox, a new video has suggested. According to the video, IllumiRoom “envisions a next-generation gaming console, with a projector that sits on your coffee table and surrounds your television with projected light”.

The video goes on to explain that IllumiRoom can be used to extend the gaming content out of the TV, or show in-game elements such as explosions and snow.

It also features a brief clip of Portal running on the new technology. Microsoft’s Eric Rudder told The Verge that while IllumiRoom was nothing more than proof-of-concept, the technology behind it is very sophisticated. It helps create a larger gaming area through the use of the Kinect sensor and a projector.

The Kinect sensor scans the room so that the projected effects contour with other objects that might be in the room, such as lamps or bookcases.

The technology is expected to be shown in more detail at this week’s CHI 2013 event in Paris.

Unveiled at this year’s CES event in Las Vegas, IllumiRoom was first discovered in a patent filing linked to the Xbox 720.

All effects shown in the previous proof-of-concept video were recorded in real-time, without any effects added in post-processing.
