The trend is on and this new year giving rise to hopes of a better development in technologies the gaming has entered a new era of reality-based simulation, leaving behind all the old.

The evolution of games has scaled higher levels and generated millions of Super Mario to Rouge Assassins fans across the globe which shows how varied the gamers’ choices are.

As recently in reports, PC Assassin’s Creed Rouge will be able to transform the way we see the gaming world. Thanks to the innovative technology; PC Assassin’s Creed Rouge will use eye-tracking for a stunning gaming experience giving the gamers an infinitely screen effect.

With this technique, a user would be able to play the game hands-free and control the moves right with their eye-movement making it natural and be and feel the character they represent.

This is brought in shape by Tobii Tech, the global leader in eye-tracking technology in partnership with Ubisoft, the leading creator, publisher and distributor of games. Assassin’s Creed Rouge would be the world’s first gaming eye-tracker game proving the fact that the human interface in gaming is getting stronger and this is just a beginning.

The technology used is high-end and the game will be positioned by reacting at the player’s eye gaze and movements. This will help player take a stronger control over the game in a high contrast with a mouse-controlled experience. Apart from this, the users will not have to do anything extra to pause in the game; the game will pause automatically when your eyes are away from the screen and resume as soon as you look back at it.

Taiwanese fabless semiconductor company MediaTek — set to bring its gaming-focused “Helio G90” chipset series in India in partnership with Chinese company Xiaomi — is working towards designing more smartphone chipsets that will be designed in India, a senior executive has said.

The entire processor design, System on Chip (SoC) integration and gaming software of the MediaTek Helio G90 series have been designed at the company’s facility in Bengaluru.

“There are many more smartphone chips in the pipeline aimed to be designed in India. To do that, you need the right engineering talent and leadership. That’s where the investment comes — in hiring the right talent to grow the design teams to be able to work on the chips,” Rituparna Mandal, General Manager, MediaTek, told IANS.

The Helio G90 chip series is slated to debut in India next month and Chinese handset Xiaomi is the first player to partner with MediaTek to include its “Helio G90” chip series in its device.

According to the fabless semiconductor firm, the overall time taken to design the chip series was around six months.

“Helio G90 has an Octa Core design and the first MediaTek product which has the ‘Arm Cortex A76 plus’ processor going up to speeds of over 2.05Ghz. We worked on the complete designing as well as the overall chip integration. The overall timeline was extremely aggressive,” Mandal informed.

To further leverage Indian talent, MediaTek is looking to ramp up its headcount in the country.

“India is a powerhouse of talented engineers who are available in both verticals, hardware and software, especially chip design talent that is pretty strong in Bengaluru. We are definitely looking at growing. In Noida and Bengaluru, we have about 650 engineers and are looking at a strength of 800 in the coming years,” Mandal elaborated.
