Canadian inventor John L. Coulson has announced the rollout of a new gaming technology, identified as SIDOG for Social Interaction During Online Gaming. A core foundation to Coulson's gaming innovation is a technology provided via IP license grant from Intellectual Ventures' Invention Development Fund (IDF).
SIDOG offers the potential for game developers to create a new breed of real-time interactive gaming that will provide a much greater sense of connectivity to fellow gamers amid virtual environments and real-world surroundings. For example, plans are already underway for a real-time interactive music project called “Instant Idol©” that simulates a live-on-stage performance experience.
