Level up for the gaming world

TECH - Taking gaming to the next level with a helping hand from VR & AR

The problem

There isn’t really a problem with this one, it’s more of something to ponder. The gaming industry…it has never really evolved into the new technologies like Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality. They’ve become a bit faddy, so how on earth will AR & VR take off in the real world?

The solution

How will it take off in the real world? Make it all happen in the actual real world. We’ve seen things like Pokemon Go utilise real world surroundings to create their game and we’ve now met a clever company who can bring your favourite games to your bedroom using AR & VR. Their created characters are pretty innocuous for now, but lets not hope the soldiers and rampaging murderers from the shooting and massacre games don’t get too real. That would all be a bit Black Mirror.
