IllumiRoom: Peripheral Projected Illusions for Interactive Experiences

IllumiRoom is a proof-of-concept system that augments the area surrounding a television with projected visualiza­tions to enhance traditional gaming experiences. They investigate how projected visualizations in the periphery can negate, include, or augment the existing physical environ­ment and complement the content displayed on the television screen. Peripheral projected illusions can change the appearance of the room, induce apparent motion, extend the field of view, and enable entirely new physical gaming experiences. Their system is entirely self-calibrating and is designed to work in any room. They present a detailed exploration of the design space of peripheral projected illusions and demonstrate ways to trigger and drive such illusions from gaming content. They also contribute specific feedback from two groups of target users (10 gamers and 15 game designers); providing insights for enhancing game experiences through peripheral projected illusions.
