The Future of Mobile Gaming

The Future of Mobile Gaming

Whether it's a game cartridge from the good old days of gameboys to today's app downloads, there is one thing in common with both. Money, gameboys were relatively cheap even more so then the games that were played on them. The same can be said for today's games, the difference is games today are pretty easy to get a hold of if you got the cash. Not only are they easy to find but some are actually free, however the same can't be said for the old mobile games. Any older game that you ever got that was free was either in a cereal box or by a family member or friend, today we can download hundreds of free games onto our tablets or even smartphones.

 

I, being someone who is coming from the gameboy era, I would have never even imagined a cell phone being able to power a full on RPG. In the world of today with advancements in technology, I never count my chickens before they hatch, meaning I will never say “ That's Impossible “ or “ Like that's ever going to happen “. I find that having this approach towards technology in general can be helpful "sometimes", however there is always going to be that one person who doesn't have that idea of infinite possibilities when it comes to technology, or even life in general. I mean take a look back at all the things that you would've though never would have happened, I bet you'll find many of those things have come to pass. So with that being said, I find the future of mobile gaming to be something out of our science fiction programs.

 

 

One of my ideas for a future mobile gaming device would be a small square box that could fit into your pocket, when you place this box on the ground and hit the start button the device would scan the surroundings and you, basically identifying your hands, legs etc. and then you would be able to move your hands to operate the navigation and the game itself. In a sense you would be combining virtual reality with your own, no need for a monitor or headset because everything would be projected around you virtually, of course. Even with today's technology this idea could become available within this year , however at the moment gamers are more accustom to operating games with a controller or mouse. So with processing becoming faster and graphics becoming more powerful in the mobile gaming field, what else is possible with today's most advanced technology, I'm sure Google has something on the drawing board or in there back pockets.

Man and Machine, Transhumanism!

Centuries ago when Galileo peered up at the stars through a telescope, I wonder if he ever thought to himself, “ Wouldn't it be cool if our eyes had the capability to Zoom in to objects “? Well I can tell you this that if Galileo was alive today he would have that answer!

 

The word of the day is Transhumanism, What is that ? You ask! Transhumanism is a cultural and international movement with the goals to transform the human condition by the way of developing technologies to enhance the human intellectual, physical and psychological capacity. When we look at todays Technology whether it is microchips, neuroscience or nanotechnology we can see the slow integration with these types of technologies into our daily lives. The question is How much integration will there be between man and technology? We know that mankind has a natural desire to live longer, become stronger and faster, and become smarter, and we will do almost anything to get there. Kinda of scary right? Transhumanism allows us to meditate on these radical possibilities of becoming a sort of superman, however is this type of thinking a waste of time?

As a radical thinker and futurist, I believe this type of research is not a waste of time. Transhumanism and the people that research and study this unorthodox way of thinking will be the people that shape our future, one way or another mankind will integrate technology within there own bodies. The fact is integration between man and machine is already being done, whether its troops coming home from the battle field or a blind person hoping to regain there vision, they all are seeking out a way to integrate technology so that they can walk again or see again.

 

The one fear that I do have with integrating technology with man is that it opens the door to many negative things. Example, The rich would have an upper hand, because they could afford such technologies to advance themselves, which puts the average/poor people at a serious disadvantage when it comes to performance. It would also open the door to being controlled by hackers or even governments, which is frightening beyond belief. That is why I would second guess integrating technology within my body! However this type of thinking is becoming accepted by millions without thinking of the repercussions and “Side affects”, and that is where we are at now. We have the capability to integrate technology, but we haven't got all the facts about the repercussions. So for now I feel that we should look at alternative ways to enhance our mind and body. And I know just the way!

 

Chemicals are a powerful and safer way to enhance the body and mind, not many people know this but most chemicals that enhance our mind and body are produced naturally in our bodies. So when one introduces more of those chemicals into the body that person will be able to think faster or have more energy, hence giving them the ability to run longer and lift heavier objects. Epinephrine is a natural hormone and a neurotransmitter which is also known as adrenaline, when people get a surge of adrenaline due to a traumatic experience they become highly alert and an increased level of excitement of the fight or flight response. Adrenaline is a natural superman, although I wouldn't try flying or bursting through brick walls!

Note: I am not a doctor and do not condone the use of hormonal enhancement drugs.

 

Now that we have taken a look at a natural way of enhancing our strength, let's take a look at enhancing our brain, I am one of those people who would rather be smarter then be stronger. I have done hours of research on safe ways to enhance focus and memory and have come up with nootropics. Nootropics is basically a vitamin for the brain and are widely used by professionals, college students and even athletes. Nootropics manipulate the chemicals in the brain that provide us with better memory recall and retention, better speech and focus as well as a wide range of other advancements. I will actually be doing a series on my YouTube channel in which I will be taking nootropics and testing my brain power and documenting it for all to see, in the hopes that opening the door to a safer way to enhance the mind and body without putting microchips inside our bodies.
