Have you heard any of these theories that the world we live in is not really a “basic reality”? Basically what we think of as “real life” is just a hyper-realistic simulation created by a more advanced version of us and we live in it.
It’s a little crazy, but when Elon Musk says this is probably the case then you need to seriously consider (damn, be the chosen one, see you at the Zion rave).
This is a huge technological leap in a very short period of time. Calculators used to be the size of a room … now you can put one in your pocket … and that same device can connect to the internet. Play music. Play the video. Data storage.
Call. Send an e-mail. Take you around the world. I wake you up in the morning. Take high resolution photos.
And all of this has happened for the past 20 years. But now, every year, new phones are released with better technology than their predecessor. Faster processing power. More storage space. Technological progress and growth is insane.
The graphical difference between a Nintendo 64 in the mid-90s and a high-end PC today, just over 20 years later … insane.
An incredible difference in a short period of time … Yes, maybe we are just in a simulation.
Anyway, let’s talk about the advancements that have been made in game design technology and what they mean to you (because the white rabbit will show up at any moment).
Continuous development of own technology
New versions of game consoles come out more frequently than before. Microsoft and Sony have released version 2.0 of their current generation systems. Xbox One became Xbox One S. PS4 became PS4 Pro.
Why do you need an update? New television technology! The original systems were not designed to support 4k / HDR picture modes.
What does this mean for you and the industry? This can mean a continuous expansion of the limits. When the game comes out, it’s time to think about the next version of gaming technology.
It can also mean a lot of portability and backward compatibility.
We saw augmented reality in action with Pokémon Go.
Well this game was really interesting for a short period of time. How long will it be before people think about using augmented reality in more than just Pokémon Go side games?
Virtual scavenger hunts, interactive theme park entertainment, virtual “activities” that can happen around you … there are some really cool possibilities.
What does that mean? You will have a lot of discretion to think outside the box. Imagine puzzles or strategy games that can be played in augmented reality. Is Yugio already in real life?
Here’s an even better idea: Don’t limit yourself to existing franchises. What original ideas in the field of intellectual property can be used in augmented reality format?
1. FACIAL RECOGNITION
3D scanning and facial recognition technology allows the systems to actually create your image in the game world (so you can create your own avatar that looks just like you) or creatively transfer your own feelings to other digital creations. On top of that, the Intel RealSense 3 Demination Camera can allow developers to create games that suit the gamer’s emotions by scanning 78 different spots on a person’s face. For example, a few grimaces on the game screen mean that the system will instantly reduce the difficulty of the game.
2. SPEECH RECOGNITION
Too lazy to take that controller? There are no problems! Voice-activated games have been just about for a while, but the potential for using this technology in gaming systems has finally become a reality: Computers can now easily recognize a user’s voice commands. Not only can you twist the console on and off with this technology, but you can also use voice commands to control the game, interact on social media, play selected items from your library, or search the Internet, simply by speaking to the game system. …
3. GESTURE CONTROL
Or get rid of the controller entirely! Intel RealSense technology allows you to play first-person shooter games or simply interact with your device with just a few movements of your hand. Using a 3D camera that tracks 22 individual points on their hand, the gesture control allows users to connect to the game using their natural body movements. For example, Warrior Wave uses RealSense technology, so you can use your hand (the outline of which is shown on the screen) to guide a group of ancient Greek soldiers to safety.
4. AMAZING GRAPHICS
We’ve come a long path from the days of fundamental 8-bit graphics in games. The latest advancements now allow gamers to experience games in fully rendered worlds with photorealistic textures. The ability to enhance your gaming experience with higher image quality makes you feel like you are in the game.
5. HIGH SCREEN SCREENS
With such great game graphics, you should have a real way of showing it. Experience Ultra 4K gaming. Although 4K-capable TVs (meaning they must support at least 4,000 pixels) or 4K laptops (like the Intel-based Lenovo Y50) started at thousands of dollars, their price has steadily declined, making this format the standard. eventually. We watch the games we play There is nothing better with unmatched color and clarity. You think 1080p looks good …
6. VIRTUAL REALITY
While many VR game consoles have yet to be released, VR headset display designers are poised to give gamers a fully immersive gaming experience that has never been seen before. In fact, you can lose yourself in the game before coming back to reality.
7. ADDITIONAL REALITY
If the virtual world is not for you, why not play our games? Not limited to a television or computer monitor, augmented reality games offer a unique perspective for the gamer. They maneuver in the real world and make the game object applicable to real life situations. For example, play table hockey on the kitchen counter from any angle or solve puzzles traced through obstacles in the backyard.
8. USE GAMES
Whether it’s smart watches or glasses, handheld games make gaming portable without being too aggressive. Companies that started with wearables for fitness applications are now looking to include entertainment as well. Portable devices are not just an extension of your body, but also an extension of the game consoles you know and love.
9. MOBILE GAMES
With the advent of smartphones, gaming has moved from the arcade and living room to the palm of your hand. As the countless people on your morning train crowding to play games on their devices attest, mobile technology has spread the love for digital games beyond consoles and online gamers.
10. GAMES IN THE CLOUD
Rather than building video game systems that require more powerful hardware, developers are looking to lighten the load by using the cloud. Games no longer need to be maximum by the amount of memory that discs or consoles can provide. Using the cloud opens up huge limits on gaming server size when images are streamed to your screen over the Internet.
11. GAMES ON REQUEST
Players can already watch and post live streams of games, but what about playing them? Like same movie streaming services, the ability to stream video games is increasingly becoming a reality, and this could propel game developers large and small to compete for the glory of games.
