Multimedia and the Future


As technology progresses, so will multimedia. Today, there are plenty of new media
technologies being used to create the complete multimedia experience. For instance, virtual
reality integrates the sense of touch with video and audio media to immerse an individual into
a virtual world. Other media technologies being developed include the sense of smell that can
be transmitted via the Internet from one individual to another. Todays video games include

of integrating media will make the multimedia experience extremely intricate and exciting.
