Developments in Esports gaming technology is critical to the sector’s growth
Updated: Apr 5
Technological advancements have changed the face of the gaming industry. We’ve come a long way from inserting a tape into a cassette player and painstakingly waiting for our 2D game to load. In fact, gaming has seen something of a revolution in the last decade, but where’s the next big thing coming from?
Improved graphics and visual effects
Advancements in graphics technology mean players can enjoy stunning, immersive visuals with better lighting, shading, and more intricate details in the game world.
Better hardware has led to faster processing speeds, enabling developers to create more complex games with larger worlds, and more realistic AI. Fast load times and high performance – including smooth gameplay with minimal lag – are now basic requirements.
More immersive gameplay
Virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) games are a significant step change in immersive gaming. Improved sound technology adds to the more realistic soundscapes possible
Cross-platform compatibility and increased accessibility
Gaming is now more accessible to a wider audience. Cloud gaming and streaming technology offers new flexibility. Players can now enjoy their favourite games on different devices, including smartphones, tablets, consoles, and computers. The ability to use mobile devices to game on the go has made gaming more convenient and more accessible to people who may not have access to traditional gaming platforms like consoles or PCs
Enhanced multiplayer experiences
Online gaming and matchmaking technology has delivered a more seamless and enjoyable multiplayer experience
And it’s showing no signs of slowing. According to market research company Statista, the video game sector is set to reach a value of $372 billion in 2023, attracting 3.04 billion users by 2027.
The gaming industry is highly competitive. Companies need to stay in touch with consumer demand to stay ahead of the curve and remain relevant.
Gamers have come to expect the latest technology and the best gaming experiences. So, at the same time as developing their own technology, it’s vital gaming companies also work with new technology providers who are discovering ground-breaking ways to further enhance the gaming experience.
In-ear technology is a relatively new addition to the gaming industry. Its potential in evolving the gaming experience – especially in esports – is attracting a lot of interest.
We believe the next leap in gaming could be in the ear – harnessing the power of one of the smallest muscles in the body.
In the next few months, we’re going to be working with the esports sector on the unique trial of its kind using EarSight®️ – our patented technology we believe will reshape the gaming landscape.
Our patented technology is repositioning the earphone from an input-only accessory to an output innovation. Using a small muscle in the ear, gamers will be able to get the third thumb advantage and a truly hands-free gaming interface.
By working together on technological advancements, together we can expand into new markets and reach new audiences, driving growth, profitability and accessibility in gaming.
