The future of new media technology is bright. The next generation of technology, I believe, if implemented properly, could ultimately foster an even newer generation of new media. From law enforcement to video gaming, from HD, slow-motion instant replay to spatially aware tablets, this new generation of new media technology seeks to take exciting steps toward future media integration into our progressive technoculture. For example, at the 2012 Coachella festival, a hologram projecting the image of Tupac Shakur rocked the crowds alongside Snoop Lion. Realistic hologram projections of humans could be an important innovation for future media connections.
The next generation of immersive gaming is a concept of virtual reality that could change the face of video games in the future. Its attempt at replication of the real world produces high-end display quality using head tracking technology and true stereoscopic 3D. Sound technology allows you to feel the vibration of a gunshot through your entire body.In many ways, technologies like these reflect aspects of technological determinism as well as technological imaginary that “work us over completely” and are evidence of our attempts at a utopian society via the creation of technology that may try to fill the void between imperfect and perfect.
