The Aquatop Gaming Display (Video)

The future of gaming seems a bit messy. This is actually a really cool idea although, I don’t know how much fun it would be for an extended period of time. As innovative and original as gaming in water would be I can’t see something like this taking off in the home market. The Aquatop Display projects an image onto a water-filled bath. Users dip their hands in to control a computer game. It was developed by Tokyo’s University of Electro Communications. My question is; if they used an Xbox Kinect, then how come it seems to work so much better here than with an actual Xbox?

Again this is a really awesome concept and I’m sure there could be many practical uses for something like this. For example, people going through physical therapy could use something like this to regain movement and mobility in their extremities, all while having fun playing a game. I love the way gaming has changed the world as we know it and I love seeing stuff like this that shows us what people are doing to improve or change gaming. Don’t get me wrong I do enjoy what’s coming out of the big gaming companies but I’m also afraid that they are very much limiting the future of gaming to only what they want and what will make them the most money.

With people working on projects like The Aquatop Display then it gives me hope that we will continue to see new ideas and innovation in the gaming industry. As always I want to know your thoughts.
