This is in Spanish but well, it's about the Kinect technology of Microsoft that allows to expand the game screen.
I can see this becoming in the future in a special room in every gamer house dedicated to having the console there and playing :P
I saw the same article this morning but in english, here. It's an interesting concept for sure, I guess we'll get more information on it when Microsoft announces the new XBOX console at E3 later this year. It's called IllumiRoom btw.
This seems to be really promising technology, I must say. Thanks for the article guys - can't wait to see what develops from this type of system.

The illumi room as a concept seems awesome but in turn it does seem to have that tiny flaw of being expensive. I mean, wouldn't you need a large enough clear room for it? And of course you would need the the proyectors and the means to make the room at least dark enough for the images to appear clear which in some cases will result in people having to incur aditional blind expenses. Heck, even where I play video games I don't think I'd be able to make the room dark enough during the day, I would definitely need to spend decent money on new blinds.
Another scenario, what if someone already plays using a proyector as a screen? In that scenario it is entirely possible the screen would have to be smaller for the thing to not interfere which kinda clashes with the point of having a proyector to begin with.
