On Wednesday the 12th of December 2012 Dr Eike Falk Anderson, Senior Lecturer in Game Development at BU’s National Centre for Computer Animation (NCCA), and Drs Christopher Peters and Fotis Liarokapis from the department of Computing at Coventry University will hold the IET (Institution of Engineering and Technology) Birmingham’s Christmas Lecture on “The Future of Gaming” This public lecture will outline the evolution of computer and video games from their first emergence to the variety of modern games, ranging from casual games on mobile devices to the rich virtual environments found in desktop PC and console games. Discussion will focus on the different types of games, how game players play and interact with their games and what impact new developments in technology and game mechanics, such as gesture based user interfaces and brain computer interfaces, and emerging trends and changes in player behaviour, such as social gaming and cloud gaming, are likely to have in the future.
