Now that gaming has officially taken over your life, Microsoft will now help the experience take over the entire room, too. Microsoft's new projector, dubbed the IllumiRoom, will let your Xbox blow out beyond your t.v., expanding the visual experience to really make you feel you're in the thick of it. First shown off during last January's CES, the IllumiRoom isn't quite a real product yet, but essentially the device sits in your room, wirelessly connects to your Xbox, and uses an internal sensor to project an image all around the television resulting in a peripheral secondary display. The technology will have to be built into the next generation of games, ultimately creating an entirely new definition of home theater.
