Disclaimer: I apologise about the volume of my voice. Seems something went wrong with the audio when I was rendering the video. You will need headphones. Also, I am aware of the mistake with the subject name. 😦 I will fix it for the next blog.
For the purpose of my digital artefact I will be exploring the world of gaming, mainly how we interact with these games. I am hoping to explore the potential for medical implantations into our brains that would then allow our own thoughts to control avatars. I also intend to research game modifications and whether or not they will become a thing of the past, or will require better policing by gaming companies. This digital artefact will come in the form of short YouTube videos, podcasts and blogs. Each blog will cover one aspect of the main topic, such as current forms of brain implants, what is currently in development, the 2013 addition of The American Dream where Michael Snyder covers his beliefs in regards to a future with brain implants , as well as looking at what other people have envisioned could be possible in our future, such as the 2009 Movie ‘Gamer’ by Mark Neveldine and Brian Tayler, and finally, the ethical side of allowing gamers to freely edit game content. Where will gaming be in 10 years? Even 50 years? How quickly will this technology develop?
Each video, podcast and blog will use multiple hashtags that will, hopefully, target people who are interested in the ethical side of modding, brain implantations and the gaming future. I want the everyday modder to engage with my work, but if a gaming company was to contact me that would be ideal. I will also be sharing all iterations of my DA on my own twitter and to my own Facebook page so that other students can engage with my work, but also friends and family.
Would really love help with :
- The order of presenting the research. E.G. Current/future advances in medical implantation, Modding and the review on the Movie/Movies related to the subject matter. All link together in some way and I am struggling to work out how to order them as, to be honest, any order seems to work depending on how I word things. BUT, it could impact the angle I take.
- Anything you believe I should look into, and ways in which I could explore this subject matter further as I intend to continue this research for my next semester.
