Imagine a virtual reality gaming room built for one purpose: to give the best gaming experience possible! The whole surface of the room is lined with sensors that can capture every little movement you make. The room comes alive with visuals once the game starts and transports you to the virtual world. That is a gamers’ ultimate dream, diving into the gaming world head first with the help of state of the art technology.
Although gaming tech has surpassed players’ expectations, it is still not quite to the point of providing the ‘dream room’ mentioned above. But, it is getting pretty close. Recent revelations of game technology, which will be available as soon as the later part of this year, proves that the ultimate gaming experience is not that far away.
Tech of the Future
The techies and game developers have a single aim; make the gaming experience as realistic as possible, with an added goal of blurring the line between reality and the virtual world.
Talk of virtual reality has been around for decades; many companies have started and failed to produce virtual reality gadgets for gaming. But in the near future, as soon as the end of this year, virtual reality is coming back with a bang. Many different projects have been tested and perfected; they are ready for mass production. Oculus Rift 3D is chief among these virtual reality gadgets, with wide HD screens and all the other required tricks, it will give gamers the first real taste of virtual reality gaming.
Gaming in the Clouds
Just as films and TV programs are easily accessible for viewers via cloud services, developers will soon offer the same convenience to gamers. With a reliable high speed internet connection gamers will be able to download any game they want, no more waiting in line or paying high prices games. Games will be instantly available after they are launched and will be much cheaper.
Introducing elements of games into the players’ surroundings and letting them interact with the said elements will give video games more realism. Primitive forms of this technology are already being utilized in some mobile apps. Possibilities of using augmented reality in gaming are endless.
Virtual World meets the Real One
Many game developers are working on technologies which will allow their games to spill out of the screens. Like Microsoft’s IllumiRoom; this technology will map out the room it is placed in and project some of the game’s environments into the room.It is the developers’ objective to make this technology user accessible as soon as possible. They are trying to give the gamers a complete immersive experience by creating these technologies, so hold on to your controllers when you step into the future of gaming.
