Innovations in technology which might provide insight into how we will play games in
the future

With the release of Battlefield 3, gamers can enter an entirely new world of video games
that is dynamic and engaging in new ways. Battlefield 3 can now be used as a first person
shooter simulator, in which players can jump, crouch, and hold and fire a gun. So say goodbye
to long hours seated in front of the screen. With these new advances, Battlefield 3 highlights
some of the ways we could play our favorite games in the future.

How Does It Work?

The simulator makes use of the Igloo Vision Dome, which creates an enclosure where you
can project an HD image on the round roof for 360 degrees of video above. Then, with an omni-
directional treadmill, players can run and move around without running into the walls. The
walls also have 10 infrared tracking cameras that keep players from hitting the walls.

Lighting also plays a role. As the events on screen change, the lighting will also change
based on what is happening in the game, making you feel like you have crossed over into game
itself.

Finally, the game notes when a player gets hit by a bullet by means of a red flash on-screen,
which is recorded and the player is “wounded.” It’s even possible to set up paintball guns along
the edge of the walls to fire at a player if he or she gets hit by a bullet from the game.

Without a doubt, the simulator for Battlefield 3 will make players feel like they are serving
in active combat. It pushes the limits of contemporary gaming from tweaking the controls on a
handheld controller to actual full-body movement. It is an all-encompassing experience and will
most likely define the course of video gaming in the coming years.

Other Innovations

Changes toward making video gaming more interactive don’t stop there. Stereoscopic
gaming is also on the rise, where special glasses help create depth on the screen so that players

can experience the games on multiple levels. Unlike simple 3D graphics, stereoscopic gaming
glasses help the graphics actually pop out of the screen for many different layers of color and
action. While the simulator described above may be well out of the average gamer’s budget
right now, stereoscopic glasses are much more affordable, and no doubt gaming developers will
be creating more stereoscopic games in the future.

With these innovations on the horizon, it is clear that video gaming will become more
interactive and allow a wide-range of new actions. Playing a game will no longer entail
hours on the couch or sitting in front of the computer waiting for the pc games download. In the future, you many
not even need a computer anymore. Instead, you’ll feel like you’ve entered a fantasy world
in which you battle monsters and wizards with your own two hands, as well as all the wit and
strategy you used in your previous video games.
