    I'm pretty sure that Illumiroom was a concept only and wasn't supposed to go into production (with good reasons not to manufacture it)? :unsure:

    What good reason? If you're talking about porn... THAT is a good reason to make it! Holographic strippers FTW!

    HD projectors are pretty damn expensive last time I checked - that's one reason. In fact, a good HD projector with a fast refresh rate costs as much - if not more, than a Next Generation console will. You're looking at a +/- $500 expense here. Add that to the cost of integrating Kinect 2.0 technology into the device and woo-hoo, pretty steep price point.

    I feel ya. I was just being goofy with my post. I'm under no illusion that this technology will be anywhere near cheap. IF and I mean IF Microsoft decides to sell this at a loss it will still equal a pricey console and could also be a game changer.

    It looks cool, but I feel as if it'll be extremely distracting with other furniture in the room and only useful if you're using a completely blank wall; it felt a bit uneasy on the eyes when I was just watching that video, to be honest. :/

    More than that, it distracts the player, at times, from the games themselves. Immersion breaking out the ass: the game developers can not only force obtrusive HUD elements and objective reminders in your face--now they can set real compass points in your vision outside your TV to always let you know you need to play the game how they want you to. AMMO HERE, COVER HERE, OBJECTIVE HERE, GO HERE.

    I can see the concept of it being pretty awesome.
    However it can work very distractive.

    I just prefer a projector hooked up to a console rather then this.

    While it seems like a good idea, I don't think many would be fond of it thanks to it being a little distracting.

    and who has a big enough room for this monstrosity plus it's projecting onto anything around the tv like bookcases, chairs and what not which looks stupid not to mention it just looks so damn terrible. holo-deck this ain't!

    Strobe lights? Better prep the EMS teams, 'cause gamers be going spastic and be having seizures and whatnot. Plus you'd have to get a projector on top of the the console, and a big enough room to project in.
