Revolt-Tech Writes: A technology which has been rapidly developing, and is now on the verge of a viable release, in-eye contacts which project images/video could greatly impact our “view” on gaming (get it?)
Drop money on HDTV, 3DTV Comes out Buy 3DTV, glasses-free 3D comes out Buy glasses-free 3DTV... in-eye TV? OH CMON!
think about it! Real life HUD!!!! ahahahaha amazing
This can't be good...
It means the Matrix.
Most popular thing would be a GPS radar on the lower right corner of your eyes, kinda like in GTA. :D Imagine playing a real game of football and the lens can keep track of the scores. Maybe it could even overlay a simple uniform on top of the players. Or maybe just overlay solid colors on top of each player to differentiate between the two teams. I bet paintball or airsoft gun matches will become REALLY popular in real life if they provide HUDs like CoD and keep track of scores.
That's technology for you, it advances so quickly. It's Moore's law.
I didn't even think about gaming... I thought about cheating on my exams in university.
Lenses + Neurosky ( http://www.youtube.com/watc... + 3rd Space Vest ( http://www.youtube.com/watc... = ???
What if they malfunctioned and you couldn't see anything for a while?
You take them out?
This tech is still a long ways off, if ever. This type of thing has a better chance of being handled by some type of implant vs. contact. While it might be possible to build LED type contacts, no where do they explain how they will manage to get those images to the contacts or how to even power the contacts.
What it means is porn straight to my dome
Lol! Good one :)
I'm going to get a radar in the top left corner of my contact lens.
what next terminators ?
hmm,if they can somehow detect our body parts and project items on to them in the cotacts,it wouldm provide an interesting experience e.g you see a gun on your hand through the contacts
If this gets used in gaming, they'll call it a murder simulator and we'll go through that shitstorm for a year. Then when the media cant get views off it anymore, we'll be able to play games like that
The future is a scary place.
This is where i draw the line personally . Nothing tech based in my eyes or my body
this could be interesting...
Yea... I think I'll stick with my TV for now. Sounds cool and all, but I'd rather not watch things through contacts...
This is just one step closer to APU implants in the brain. That'll be an aweful world.
prepare for the singularity.The non-transhumanized will perish in the face of our robot leaders.
Scary shit 0_0 it kinda reminds me of ghost in the shell, surf the web with your eyes! Yup we are one step closer to having full cyborg body's.
sounds pretty cool but i will never use a thing like that. Contact lenses always bothered the heck out of me
3D gaming obsolete??
This is the future i want. No minority report crap with floating screens. The eye is the most accurate and quick part on the human body besides the brain. Perfect example. Look at something as fast as you can like this point. O Now if you try to quickly point your finger at the same point, you will miss it by a margin, then spend a little bit of time correcting youself. It's just too cumbersome compared to the accuracy of the eye. Of course, this technology in the article is for a screen with the hands still doing the controls, but I believe the future is controlling with the eye along with seeing.
How would your eye track this...You could literally only have the image in front of your pupil...everything else would be peripheral vision (somebody said a hud in your lower left corner of your eye, but if its a contact, you would NEVER BE ABLE TO SEE IT). Think about it...if it's in your contact, the image would move wherever you moved; you wouldn't be able to pan around and really "take in" the image. It would be like a constant "floaty thing" in the corner of your eye that you could never actually see... This sounds cool but in reality might be a little harder to utilize, i think glasses would be better, you could still move our eye around and see different information.
Deus Ex HR's story isn't so far fetched I guess :P one step closer to human augmentation
Looks like were gonna have many dry eyed and pink eyed gamers
being flash banged on Mw2 would be scary and bad for your eyes i find it's bad enough on a bright lcd screen.
It means i can play games while walking
more like while falling from an actual cliff :p
