UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS -- How would you like to take your TV screen and make it as big as your entire living room? That's just one part of a project called "Illumi-Room."

UI student, Brett Jones, helped kick-start the idea while he was interning with Microsoft. A projector would transform your room into one big screen, changing the way you play video games, watch movies and maybe even making shows interactive, like Dora the Explorer.

Another thing it could do is interact with your furniture. You can change the way your stuff looks, and if it snows in your game or show, you would watch it accumulate on your tables and chairs.
