Microsoft this week revealed a new proof-of-concept project that attempts to use the living room space around your television as part of your video game experiences.

IllumiRoom utilizes the Kinect for Windows camera, coupled with a projector, to change the appearance of the room around your TV, potentially extending your field of view in the game and inducing an added feeling of motion.

Kinect captures the geometry of your room and then proceeds to project visuals in real-time onto your surroundings. Microsoft says that this augmentation can work to enhance the traditional living room video game and entertainment experience.

The company plans to reveal more about the project in April at the upcoming CHI Conference in Paris.
