At Samsung's CES keynote today, Microsoft showed a video of Illumiroom, a technology that the company says will "expand interaction to any surface in your home." In other words, it projects imagery beyond your TV screen for a more immersive gaming experience. Bullets fly out of the display, an in-game fire makes it look like your living room is going up in flames, and a first-person shooter plays out on an entire wall.

It works by mapping the room with Kinect to create interactive illusions in real-time; this is something we'd love to see for ourselves, but unfortunately Microsoft won't show it off fully until April. In the meantime, watch this video to get a glimpse of where Microsoft sees the living room going.
