This video is for a real life Microsoft research project. IllumniRoom is a proof-of-concept project that shows how the area around a TV screen can be augmented with extra visualisations.
It’s really one of those videos you need to watch to fully understand. After all; “augmented with extra visualisations” doesn’t really do the experience justice. I like how they made sure they had a cluttered living room wall with shelves and all.
That said, in this blogger’s tiny flat, the TV is right beside a window, in a corner and at an angle. There’s not enough room to use the Kinect. I imagine the IllumiRoom would struggle.
