Ocular Gaming

As facially-worn tech gains popularity, gaming is given a spectacle enhancement

Implications - Moving beyond handsfree and motion-sensitive technologies, gaming is evolving to incorporate facially worn controllers that expand the virtual reality advancements of years past. As the imminent race against Google Glass becomes more apparent, brands are acclimatizing consumers to the concept of facially worn technology by incorporating it into the gaming world. This move toward head-worn controllers speaks to a consumer inclination for extreme levels of convenience to the point that even the pushing of buttons and joysticks has become archaic.
