You may think that gaming technology has already about as far as it can go. We are already used to seeing amazingly realistic computer-generated figures moving around in virtual landscapes. We can already swat objects in the air or play virtual tennis. Can computer images get even more realistic? Will it become hard to tell what is real from what isn't? Will we be able to see, hear, and feel in a completely realistic virtual world? With developments in gaming technology, playing a video game will be a very different experience in the future.
