Technology is advancing far quicker than people can keep up with. Fortunately, these technological advances include new advances in the gaming world. Gamers are no longer bound by a screen and a controller.
Gaming has seemingly developed into something that captivates all senses for an optimal gaming experience. And of course, none of us are complaining.
3 new gaming technologies that everyone should try at least once are:
- Virtual Reality: What once was something people could only see in science fiction films or television shows is now reality; virtual reality, that is. Virtual reality has taken the world by storm as it transports users into a fully engaging experience that feels and looks extremely real. When people put on the virtual reality headset, they can experience the world of a game up close and personal. Luckily, virtual gaming headsets are available for purchase by the public, so gamers can have virtual reality in the comfort of their own homes.
- Augmented Reality: If virtual reality isn’t to your liking, augmented reality just might be. The difference between the two is that augmented reality doesn’t require an immersive headset. It can take place right in front of you from your smartphone. One perk of augmented reality is that many AR games are available on the app store on your phone. Many might be familiar with the iconic game Pokemon GO. AR gives a perspective unique to the gamer and is definitely worth a try.
- Facial Recognition: While 3D scanning and facial recognition aren’t entirely new concepts, they are when you apply them to the gaming world. Users can now use facial recognition to create fully customized avatars that look like you. It can capture all kinds of facial expressions that can be expressed by your avatar in the game. So now you don’t have to spend an enormous amount of time trying to get your face and hair just right on your avatar.
While these are just some of the many new advancements in technology from the gaming world, they are among the most popular. The gaming experience has definitely changed in the last decade and sometimes it can even be hard to keep up.
