In 2018, technology is running at a faster pace than most people could match up. While industry giants are leading the way in finding innovative solutions to business problems, there is one sector that focuses solely on the ‘wonders of technology.’ Anyone following the gaming industry knows that innovation is the cornerstone of every game developer’s mission to success.
Here are some of the most interesting gaming technologies that could create an undeniably futuristic gaming world for us.
We all love customizing our gaming avatars while playing our favorite games. What could happen if the avatar came with your face? New face recognition technology in games can not just help you create a virtual persona but also mimic your expressions.
Intel’s RealSense 3D camera allows game developers to sense the users’ emotions and adapt the gameplay accordingly. It takes 78 different points in the face into account to see whether you are excited, scared or happy. Intel’s technology also enables gesture control for your games. It tracks about 22 different points in your hand to read your gestures and adapt accordingly.
It is not just about asking your console to switch on and off and do a few random searches. Voice recognition in games has now moved to the next level of interaction, where you don’t just ask the console to start or end a game but interact with it more freely and flexible. You can also control gameplay with voice recognition, look for hints, search the web, make gameplay videos, etc. with this tech.
Though gaming consoles and their controllers may not become obsolete so soon, it will be the VR gaming suits that could create a brand-new segment of gaming tech altogether. It could be one of the most interesting ways to play shooting/RPG games, especially when you are playing in a group or in the cloud. The best thing about these suits is that they capture your real perspectives. You need to move, look around, and hold tools and props to use them. It could be like living in a world of AVATAR- the movie.
Bigger screens and better-quality displays will change the world of gaming forever. 4K screens, in both TVs and laptops, are now making a gamer-friendly experience that is both immersive and entertaining. What’s really exciting about this display is the crispness of its graphics and the host of colors that make your screen come alive. Cutting edge graphics, unbelievably real colors, and striking designs could create a semi-realistic or even realistic feeling while playing games.
Any game that you can play on full HD, you can play on 4K screens better. If the screen size goes beyond 50 inches, which could become standard for people looking for a truly immersive gaming experience, you should expect life-like images and arguably real displays.
Augmented reality and wearable devices could make rapid changes in the way we play games. Which of these technologies are you excited about? Let us know in the comments below.
