IllumiRoom: peripheral projected illusions for interactive experiences
SIGGRAPH Emerging Technologies, pp.869-878, (2013)
IllumiRoom is a proof-of-concept system that augments the area surrounding a television with projected visualizations to enhance traditional gaming experiences. We investigate how projected visualizations in the periphery can negate, include, or augment the existing physical environment and complement the content displayed on the televisi...更多

- The television remains the focal point of living room entertainment today. While visual and audio quality has improved over the years, the content the authors watch (e.g., games, movies, TV shows) remains boxed in the frame of the display and restricted by the physical size of the screen.
- The authors extend the visual experience outside of the television screen, using a projector that covers a wide area of the surrounding physical environment.
- Similar to Focus+Context displays , the television provides a traditional, high-resolution gaming experience and the projector provides low-resolution information for the user’s peripheral vision.
- The authors capture the appearance and geometry of the surrounding room and use that information to create novel, interactive visual experiences

- We presented eleven peripheral projected illusions that demonstrate the variety of the design space
- While we explored eleven points in the design space, there are many peripheral projected illusions left to be explored
- We only scratched the surface of what is possible with a shared physics representation between the virtual and physical environments in Bounce
- Participants found the
Focus+Context techniques some of the most useful illusions for game play, because they naturally provide additional gaming information.
- One user commented that F+C Selective was “very useful for finding items, it kinda lets you see just pieces of the game that are important to know around you, and do spatial orientation.” the F+C illusions can make the user overwhelmed or more prone to sickness.
- One user commented that with F+C Full, “There was just a lot going on.
- The F+C Selective and F+C Segmented illusions seem to represent a middle ground between immersion, adding content information and balancing user comfort.
- As one user said about F+C Selective, “Out of all of these that would be the most useful and immersive without being distracting.”
- Participants responded very positively to the illusions and the concept of IllumiRoom.
- The results from the SSQ give a coarse indication of potential issues with simulator sickness.
- The mean value of Total SSQ (14.96), was within normal ranges for playing stereoscopic video games  or interacting with immersive simulators .
- To keep the user study a reasonable length the authors did not compare SSQ scores across illusions.
- Future work could explicitly compare individual SSQ scores
- CONCLUSION AND FUTURE WORK
In this paper the authors presented a proof-of-concept system for augmenting the physical environment surrounding a television to create a more magical gaming experience.
- The authors only scratched the surface of what is possible with a shared physics representation between the virtual and physical environments in Bounce.
- It is not clear what it means if a grenade falls out of a game and explodes in your living room; if the virtual camera is moving around and the physical environment is static.
- As some illusions distort reality, future work should explore how far users are willing to push their concept of reality, in their own living room
- Our work draws on previous research in Spatial Augmented Reality, artistic installations with ‘projection mapping’, and HCI research on peripheral displays.
Spatial Augmented Reality Spatial Augmented Reality (SAR) is the concept of merging the physical and virtual worlds through video projection . Shader Lamps first developed the idea of augmenting the colors of physical objects with video projection; appropriating everyday physical objects as displays . A number of projects have since demonstrated the use of projectors to augment workspace environments [20,23,30].
Several SAR projects have enabled gaming experiences involving physical objects, such as wooden blocks, which can be arranged by users to create a game [15,30]. Two recent examples [4,30] supported real-time physics-based interactions between virtual objects and physical objects.
