amBX Game Play Environment

One of my friends passed a very interesting link along to me. The link outlines an exciting approach to the future of gaming and home entertainment. The technology is being introduced by Philips and is called amBX. The amBX technology is being produced for ambient gaming, and perhaps home entertainment as a whole.

The technology sends signals to compatible hardware within the home to provide an atmosphere similar to the game play atmosphere. If you're playing a game within a jungle and the screen atmosphere is of color green, then the lights within the room turn the same shade of green. Strobes of light may simulate lightening, and fan blasts may simulate a rapid fall. The affect will provide us with a full sensory game play experience.

Philips is leading the way with advanced discussions with top videogame producers and peripheral manufacturers. Be on the look out, this technology may be available to us in May 2006! Find more information here: http://www.pro-g.co.uk/news/nid/1784/
