Next level of gaming
I figure we could all use a post on the lighter side of things for the moment.
For those who don’t know, Nintendo is working on the next version of DS which will have 3D capabilities without the need of glasses.
Videos have been slowly leaked onto the web over the past week but this one completely blew me away.
As an advocate for video games, I am often asked if there are actual benefits to playing them. I think will start pointing them to this video as a perfect example of how games can help enhance perspective and spatial reasoning.
And incidentally, yes, I have technolust at this very moment… oh, and a birthday coming up :::cough::::
As posted in the comments section by WC, it looks like this is simply a 3D game created for the regular DS (but not available in the US). Props to WC for picking this up and pointing is out.
I’m gonna keep the post up though as it still does show us a taste of what 3D gaming could hold and definitely emphasizes the educational aspects of gaming. That, and it still whets my technolust palate.
