Microsoft RoomAlive Xbox Video

Have you ever watched Star Trek and wished you could be in the holodeck interacting with exotic simulated environments? Well, Microsoft is making that dream more of a reality with a killer new concept that they’re calling “RoomAlive” for Xbox.

The new concept they’re striving for was just posted to the Projection Mapping Central blog by Microsoft researchers. It shows us the possibilities of what it would be like if the Xbox wasn’t just on your TV. It shows us what it would be like if your Xbox was a fully immersive experience that engulfs your entire living room.

To make the “RoomAlive” a possibility, an Xbox owner would have to have a projector system that covered the entire room:

How this works is that the projector would display the Xbox game images throughout your living room, and then the Xbox Kinect would track your movement as you interact with them. The result would look something like this:

We don’t know when we’ll see the “RoomAlive” in action with Xbox games that use the technology, but here is a demonstration of how Microsoft intends on having gamers use the it. Check out the video below for some “RoomAlive” tech in action.
