Ray Kurzweil Looks Into the Future of Gaming | Game|Life | Wired.com

Ray Kurzweil Looks Into the Future of Gaming | Game|Life | Wired.com | Future Of The Video Game Industry | Scoop.it

"If you want to see into the future, says inventor, futurist, and author Ray Kurzweil, keep your eye on the development of videogames."

 

"Delivering the keynote address on the second day of the Game Developers’ Conference, Kurzweil discussed that the world of technology was changing so drastically and so rapidly that it was difficult to predict what might happen just a few years from now."

Lachlan Power's insight:

This article posted on WIRED gives a prediction of gaming in the next 20 years. Although both this article and the presentation done by Ray Kurzweil was made in 2008 it is still good to see if his prediction has followed suit since. The article throughout states the rise in gaming at the time (around the same time as the apple store started to rise). Boasting that a game could be created with "$1000 and a laptop". Also stating that game development will "still be advancing at an exponetial clip as technology changes". A very good article although 5 years out of date it still proves for some research.
