As you know, the company Oculus and Samsung offer a plunge into the virtual reality using special glasses.
But the project RoomAlive offer a very different approach: using a projector, Kinect controllers and software can turn any room into an interactive environment for games and other multimedia content.
For this purpose, six sets consisting of a projector and a computer controller. In this video mapping technology is used, so that every square inch of the room is illuminated and monitored.
This approach has several advantages: it uses common components, the system is easily installed and configured. At that time, as in other decisions need to manually calibrate and aim the camera, everything you need for IllumiRoom just install the ceiling, send the desired strontium, and everything else will take care of the software.
The software can not only project a three-dimensional image, but also to determine the orientation of the surfaces – horizontal, vertical, and floors. Of course, interactive projection. Installation cost of such rooms is not cheap, but the question of this is not worth it, because the project is in the early experimental stage.
