XBOX 720 Holodeck Technology

    Microsoft have released a video showing off their next console, the Xbox 720. This new demo of its Illumiroom technology will have you buzzing like a freidge! The Microsoft Research project – shown off in a video at the Samsung CES keynote – uses a Kinect and projector to extend your TV display onto the entire wall.

    The Xbox 720 is already set to include Kinect 2.0 tech – and although the Illumiroom technology is a proof-of-concept at this stage, it could be the tech that gives Microsoft's console the edge over the Sony PlayStation 4.

    More details on the Illumiroom are set to be unveiled at the ACM SIGCHI human-computer interaction conference in Paris – between April 27th and May 2nd. Could Microsoft be laying the groundwork for an Xbox 720 that turns your living room into a holodeck? Only time will tell, but while you count down the days, check out this eye-popping video of the tech in action.

    Thats pretty sweet but i wonder if you will be able to use any projector or will have to invest into a "microsoft" branded projector, seems like a marketing ploy to me kinda like when the kinect first come out, another downside will be you will always playing in a dark room but apart from that i would love to see this thing in action in person :D

    I have to admit I'm not overly impressed with that at all.

    That is in no way selling me a 720.

    i play on a projector at the minute on a 120 inch proj screen and i must say its awesome but as others have said it will probably require me to buy a new compatible one which is not gonna happen as mine works perfect for everything
