The recent discovery of the Higgs Boson subatomic particle has got game developers as excited as an electron is a magnetic field. This once theoretical “God” particle is now a reality. It will literally change the face of video game entertainment, as soon as developers can get their hands on the data.
The Higgs Boson particle (named after a group of scientists that includes Peter Higgs) was the missing link to the quantum mechanics model of the universe. Its discovery proves these scientists were right all along. The Higgs Boson particle is responsible for shaping our universe, and giving mass to other particles by interacting with them.
“By manipulating the Higgs Boson particle, we will be able to make virtual worlds real worlds,” says scientific game developer Hans Down. “With computers, we have been able to create virtual 3D environments. With the Higgs Boson particle, we will now be able to bring those virtual environments to life. With the ability to add mass to particles, our environments will be real. You will be able to climb towers, swim in seas, taste the sweet fruits from a traveling caravan, and experience death from the strange beam of an alien weapon.”
Scientists claim the Higgs Boson particle will be able to create solid objects out of thin air. From a brick to a mountain, the particle will help create it all. It’s the catalyst to make fantasy a reality. Using computer gaming software to design objects and environments, the data will be converted into micro-molecular matrices which the Higgs Boson particle will understand. The next step is developing a language to communicate with the particle.
Scientists say this discovery is likely to be Earth-shattering. They cite the discovery of atoms and fusion as a comparison.
“We can’t see a molecule with our own eyes, so why do we have to believe they exist,” asks Down? “The truth is, we don’t have to believe, because if you split an atom, you can create an atomic explosion. Your city will be reduced to ashes whether you believe or not. The things we will be able to do with the Higgs Boson particle will be mind-shattering. This really does change everything.”
