Future of Gaming at iam8bit

Tomorrow is the opening to "Future Of Gaming" exhibit at Iam8bit. Industry leaders give quotes on their thoughts on the future of gaming, and artists like myself illustrate the quote. I was teamed up with Kim Swift (co-creator of Portal) and illustrated her quote:
"The future of gaming is going to always be with us on mobile devices that are a part of our daily lives, and will infect and project onto the world around us. We're on the advent of some truly impressive mobile devices-- input systems that detect the acoustic variances on where you tap your palm, tiny microprojectors on glasses, cameras that detect where you're looking, virtual and augmented reality, not to mention increased processing speeds. Imagine games that can project onto any surface, anywhere to create an instant display and use voice, eye direction and touch controls for inputs. Then picture the game taking into account the environment it’s being projected on to determine things like level layouts, and those projections interacting with other people’s game projections. I imagine that games will be everywhere around us.”
