Entering a digital dimension is not science-fiction anymore. Top gaming companies across the world invest in wearable gaming technologies such as Mind-Link or Neural Impulse Actuators. These wearables feature brain and motion sensors. Your impulses, while playing the game, translates into an authentic virtual reality, enhancing your emotional connection to the game.
The Rise of Biometric Gaming
Immersive virtual reality is one of the key frontiers that the gaming industry is vehemently trying to cross. Although ‘biometric gaming,’ as in when the gamers’ responses directly affect their gameplays, is still not perfect, it’s improving at a rapid pace. A key tool for biometric gaming experts is ‘haptic technology.’
The Futuristic ‘Sensory’ Gear of Gaming Wearables
The gaming sector experiences consistent growth every year. However, there aren’t too many options for fans of wearable gaming. Thankfully, top companies like Leo Vegas are leading the line in the field of research. According to these investment experts, these are the types of gadgets that will shape of the wearable gaming industry –
- The Best for Vision – There are some good Virtual Reality Goggles in the market. But, movement sensors are not the only requirement. These headsets should have tracking technology to enable users to make 3D movements. Motion-tracking controllers offer super-immersive gaming experiences. This technology is also perfect for top online casino games.
- Sensing Touch – To precisely calculate player touches, the gaming system needs to have a tactile response system. Messages transmit in real-time via a ‘haptic network’. Wear this to sense game vibrations. You can get haptic gloves, entire suits, etc. Never had a kick at a football? Kick a virtual football in your home with your wearables – entertaining and surprisingly realistic.
- Movement – More complex wearable gaming setups feature up to 24 inertial sensors that the user has to wear. The sensors simulate real-life movements in real-time. ‘Motion capture gaming’ is this genre of game development. An apt title as fans of war games will love these super-accurate sensory-systems.
- Practice Virtual Sports – Virtual sports is the next big thing. Practice basketball, golf swings, or even boxing on these multi-layer virtual gaming systems. Watch instant replays of your movements to improve your skill (whatever game you are practicing).
The wearables industry is not booming yet. But as soon as some obvious obstacles such as the lack of faster internet speed go away, wearable technology will have a much bigger stake in the gaming industry.
