Future of gaming

[ Edited ]
7 replies 255 views Edited Mar 14, 2014

There have been some really neat in the news concerning games that has me excited and seems like a move into the next generation of gaming. Im not specifically talking about these new next gen platforms but things like the oculus rift (VR headset). Some of the things done with this tech have been amazing and made even better with motion dots on the outside to more accurately pinpoint movement and visual stimulation. Something else has really caught my eye though even beyond the rift.......

if you have seen this movie (which is amazing BTW) you see him play video games. The game is set up sort of like a projector casting a world in front of and around him as the player. He is able to control the game with his hands and no other equipment. He can interact with the world around him and "touch/grab/pull closer" the images in the world with simple hand gestures. He can talk to the world and the world can answer him in non canned responses. THIS leap into the gaming world was crazy to me. Id love this kind of immersion in gaming. Has anyone seen this movie and him playing the video game? What did you think of the scene and of that direction of gaming?

No one saw the movie "Her" and saw the video game sequences?

Holodecks have existed in fiction for ages.  Technology isn't there yet.  Maybe sooner than later, who knows.

sure but i haven't ever seen them used the way he did. and the "unscripted" dialog that went back and forth seemed very very natrual.

You'd have to really understand how complex creating "uncanned" responses would be. No computer can match the computing capacity of the human brain. (until they figure out that they need to make computers from organic pathways and processors). And it would be even harder to make it sound like a sexy Scarlett Johansson.

 

Language parsing is the thing that computers have the most trouble with. 

 

One of my classes argued that humans don't learn language, as much as they come prebuilt to speak it. 

 

I think gaming will go back to board games and dice games in the future.

 

I'll be rolling the dice to see if that running back break that tackle for the 50 yard run across the cardboard field.

The gaming section had very little to do with her. It was a small "alien" creature and his responses to the gamer seemed natural. Im not referring to scarlets portion of the movie.

You mean that ninety minute episode of The Big Bang Theory that somehow Spike Jonze got a free pass on?
