This week’s Gadget Show was themed around futuristic tech to celebrate the start of new series Flash Forward. Otis Deley traveled to Germany to experience some technology that is said to revolutionise how we interact with video games. Although interesting, they all seem to be based around something that has already tried to make it big but never quite took off – Virtual Reality. Despite being able to replicate 1:1 movements of the wearer, the graphics just aren’t good enough to be as immersive as intended. Another aspect of the tech is just how much space they take up. With an ever growing population space will become a luxury that not everyone will be able to afford so I would imagine gaming will be getting smaller rather than bigger – take the PS3 Slim for example. Regardless of all that, the Virtual Reality Otis gets to play with is quite impressive non the less! Check out the video after the break of Mr Deley’s adventure (Oh and ignore all the adverts – that’s Channel Five for you).
