Hi  :bye:

How would you guys think about the development of game industry? How will games likely be in the future? What kind of DIY cool projects that gamers will create with Raspberry Pi? Bla bla...share any idea please :)

I think the most significant change will be lower barriers to entry.

 

As companies like Unity and Unreal and Improbable.io keep building tools to let smaller teams make bigger and better games it will be harder for big companies to stay ahead of indie developers. (which will be good!)

 

This can be coupled with AI and machine learning allowing procedural generation of game content which will also allow smaller teams to build bigger games. 

 

Also linked to this is things like these: https://www.reddit.c...MediaSynthesis/ where we have AIs manipulating images and creating animations from videos. 

 

If we can get to the point where someone can film themselves with their phone and have an AI turn it straight into animations for their game, that's when things will become amazing, or when they can use AIs to directly generate good animations procedurally, this will be another huge increase in the quality and scope a small dev team can produce. 

 

Also VR/AR will take off eventually when they get VR conferencing to work in an immersive way that will give a business case for VR/AR, this will result in costs for VR devices coming down, and in turn will grow the VR market leading to better games and tools for use in VR/AR.

I love thinking about how the gaming industry will change. I look back just 20 years or even 10 years and marvel at the differences!

I think VR and AR are going to be massive game changers in the next 10 years as computers come down in price and allow such technologies to become affordable for the many.

I'm also looking to full haptic suits like the Tesla suit one day becoming affordable and common place

I was watching a video on a new multidirectional treadmill that looked really cool, although who knows if the cost on those will ever be low enough that large games will be designed for them.

 

My biggest question on VR/AR why has no major commercial device released that uses a pair of gloves as the controller. (by major I mean like Rift, Vive, PSVR etc.)

 

I've seen working gloves, so its not impossible, my only guess is they must be too expensive. at the moment.

The treadmills are shown in Ready player one. I imagine this short of technology will never catch on enough to warrant it ever becoming affordable for most.

The gloves are still a work in progress really. I believe these will become the norm and affordable soon enough.
Hell, they've apparently invented gloves where it can make you think your touching a completely different texture to what you're ACTUALLY touching.

VR is really a big trend for game development. I believe in next 5-10 years we will be able to find a cheaper material and affordable software to run the VR games. Then each of us could have one VR chair and glasses at home (uuu....how fancy that sounds  :cool:

However to look at what these guys are doing with their Raspberry Pi. I'm excited to see how this hardware can do in the future. There will be more interesting project that they make, not only for fun but also for the game and technology development. Well...imagine VR games made with Raspberry Pi or something even more exciting!
