RoomAlive is a proof-of-concept prototype that envisions a future of interactive gaming with projection mapping. RoomAlive not only transforms any room into an immersive, augmented entertainment experience through the use of video projectors, it allow users to interact with it. Users can for example touch and shoot the projected content. RoomAlive is based on the old IllumiRoom project from Microsoft Research.
Today, MSR once again posted a demo of RoomAlive project which you can see above.
It’s Halloween today, which for many of us means a day filled with wacky costumes and free candy. But for a group of Microsoft researchers, it’s a unique opportunity to showcase the potential of one of their research projects, RoomAlive.
Making big waves when it debuted at UIST 2014 this year, RoomAlive uses multiple projectors to adapt interactive content that makes use of all of a room’s walls. Using RoomAlive’s capabilities, Microsoft researchers and summer intern Julian Kantor have developed a video that is as frightening as it as inventive.
