Microsoft SurroundWeb reworks IllumiRoom for immersive web


Microsoft has given its IllumiRoom concept a makeover, with the immersive projected gaming experience evolving to deliver interactive web content that fills the living room and engages with Xbox One, Windows Phone, and Windows. Dubbed Microsoft SurroundWeb, the concept relies on the same approach of using projectors to cast digital graphics onto the surfaces of real-world objects, like the wall surrounding a TV or the coffee table in front of it, which then react to the user within that space.

So, a table surface can be turned into a huge touchscreen controller, expanding the view from a smartphone or tablet, and tracking where the user touches on it. Alternatively, object-recognition can be used to deliver richer metadata.
