Projection tech is "purely a research project" at this point

Alas, it appears talk of "next generation console" applications during yesterday's wondrous Xbox IllumiRoom footage may not be indicative of the Xbox 720's launch-day capabilities. Speaking to The Verge, Microsoft researchers Brett Jones and Hrvoje Benko have described IllumiRoom as "purely a research project" for the moment, though they certainly aren't ruling out a high street release.... read more

I don't get the appeal at all. Like what do they do... say something stupid then read the replies while they touch themselves? - Vampyre_Ghost on trolls.

I have no problems with this, I think the Illumiroom is a silly idea. It'd be distracting as hell to have it projected onto the walls around my living room. Just a plainly odd idea afaic.

5 to 10 years away? I must be in a time warp because I've been using a projector for years. 100" minecraft, yay!
