In the modern world, the motto for engineers is dream big, build big. Today a new brand of engineering, dubbed imagineering takes this mantra to the next level.
Zeenoh is an acclaimed FIlipino content creation firm. With specialists in animation, video game creation, and software development, Zeenoh has done much in the world of Virtual Reality. They are the creators of everything from the Nightfall saga, an immersive Virtual Reality horror game, to the family friendly mobile game, Aero Pets. As a result of their efforts, Zeenoh has had the pleasure of receiving official praise from esteemed organizations, the ranks of which include ASEAN and PCCI.
Virtual Reality allows user entry into immersive alternate worlds. Thus, entire worlds have to be imagined, created, and implemented, an impressive feat. The result, however, is well worth the development time. Imagineers are able to create the illusion of existence within a video game, a tool that is immensely powerful for developers, especially developers in the horror industry. Creators of horror games like Zeenoh are starting to adopt this nascent technology, creating the finest works of imagineering currently around. As Virtual Reality systems become more developed, the experience will only improve, creating the thrill that many horror lovers crave.
In video gaming in particular, imagineers have done much to further the industry. The adaptable controls that were recently showcased by Nintendo are no doubt the work of a team of imagineers. The development of curved television screens was also the work of imagineering. More recently, the creation of Virtual Reality systems embodies the futuristic spirit of imagineering.
Companies like Disney have long employed Imagineers in order to create complex theme park amusements and foster the wonderland-like aura that Disneyworld and Disneyland seem to emit. As technology develops today, the place for imagineering is more prevalent than ever. New development like motion tracking technology, immersive surround sound, and Virtual Reality systems act as new mediums for imagineers to display their talents. There is little that is more exciting than seeing an imagineer at work, creating what is and will be the future.
The simple ability to imagine is impressive on its own. To think of what does not exist is no easy feat, and scientists have hypothesised that humans are one of the few animals capable of such an ability. Even so, the ability to imagine becomes even more incredible when it is combined with the technical field of engineering. This subfield has been dubbed imagineering, a field where engineering meet the imagination to create products and inventions that have previously been unconceived.
January 25, 2017 – Imagination is often cited as the key to both creation and learning. Everyone from corporate engineers to parents of young children has been encouraged to create accepting learning environments that foster the imagination. After all, a healthy imagination is what leads to great inventions and even better people.
