Microsoft: IllumiRoom too expensive for market introduction

Posted on Monday, September 02 2013 @ 19:30:40 CEST by


Earlier this year Microsoft Research revealed IllumiRoom, a concept of a new technology that increases video game immersion by extending the game environment beyond your screen. AUS Gamers talked to Microsoft about IllumiRoom at last month's Gamescom and got to hear that this project is unlikely to hit the market because it's just too expensive:
Unfortunately, sad news arose when we pleaded with Penello to have the impressive IllumiRoom greenlit for consumers for Xbox One, he explained that consumer cost was just too big a barrier.

"I wouldn’t expect you’ll see that,” Penello said. “It’s very, very cool tech but it’s, like, for a consumer, it requires projectors and things. It’s really super-neat if you’re in the lab and you’ve got Microsoft money and you could totally set up this awesome lab, but... we looked at it, but for an average customer it’s, like, thousands of dollars [for the set up]."
