Given that artificial intelligence (AI) has been a fundamental component of science fiction movies, it feels as if it has been around forever. However, it has only been around for a few decades. AI began as a subfield of computer science, but computer games were one of the first fields in which AI was applied. Nowadays, AI is everywhere, from controlling the traffic lights in city intersections to the computerized assistants on our smartphones. In gaming, AI is used to generate non-player characters (NPCs), such as computer-controlled characters that populate a virtual world. A New Type Of Gaming: Mixed Reality (MR) The term “mixed reality” (MR) refers to a combination of real and virtual worlds. With its recent breakthroughs, MR is probably the most exciting technological advancement in recent history. MR has been around in one form or another since the mid-90s, but it was only at the turn of the century that it started to make significant progress. Nowadays, it is possible to record and store a digital representation of the real world. This digital representation can then be used in real-time to augment the real world with virtual objects.
MR is poised to change almost every aspect of our daily lives. It will transform computer-human interaction, the way we purchase goods, the way we learn and the way we entertain ourselves. It will also change the way we play games with MR opening up limitless possibilities for future game developers. MR will allow people to play games in their own homes, yet be transported to different worlds. MR is a technology that will provide endless possibilities, and game developers will explore many of these once MR becomes commercially available.
The future of gaming is looking bright. VR and MR are still in their infancy but are set to drastically change the way we play games. With more and more gamers demanding more immersive experiences, game developers will have to find ways to keep up with the growing demand. It is conceivable that these advancements in technology will help shape the future of gaming. It is clear that technology will play a crucial role in the future of gaming. The only question left to ask is what this technology will be and when we will see it implemented in games.
