Will Wright: Augmented Reality – Way Forward For Mobile Gaming

Captured in an interview with Pocket Gamer (Thanks!) in London via Kotaku:

“I can imagine mobile platforms evolving…in that they interact with the world around us in a way that changes our perceptions in a really interesting way”, said Wright, “Games could increase our awareness of our immediate environment, rather than distract us from it”.

Will Wright is by far my idol in the gaming world. He’s the smartest and the funniest, and he single handedly invents new game genres (SimCity, The Sims, Spore).

If you wonder why or how, give yourself 20 minutes off and watch his speech at TED

 

Is Will joining the Augmented Reality revolution?

(Can you say “mega idol”?…)
