Gaming Movie Theater Industry Concept: "Gaming Theater Arena"

Hello All,

Now that the soggy autumn season has gripped my part of the State of Florida. This conceptual business model seems quite appetizing for an indoor experience away from local thunder storms.

Allow me to begin that this concept isn't rather new for its been tried before be it here in the States or in Europe. Making it more an afterthought novelty experience then a serious attraction within a movie theater complex. Before I get ahead of myself allow me to explain in basic terms what a "Gaming Theater Arena" is all about. Besides watching the latest movie flick at the cinema a few rows of seating can be converted to gaming hardware seating kiosks.



Take for instance how an airliner passenger seats have those rear head board LCD tv screens in business and first class sections. Besides the classical fold up tray for eating or placing your laptop during a flight. Now borrowing from that example from airlines transfer it over to a Branded Experience. As a gaming arena in a movie theater screen salon that to keep seats filled. This option is picked up for local movie theater operators during those seasonal periods where block buster films are lacking. Let's say the Spring and Fall portions of the year when box office sales are waning. Perhaps taking a page from how IMAX 3D branded experiences are offered in literally across every movie theater operator today across America, Europe, and beyond. This concept can be directed as an augmented business model for movie theaters if not for a stand alone franchise chain of gamer theater arena's. That is after the initial prototype of its first iteration works out the kinks and glitches with the daily operations and technological hurdles.



Now back to the overall presentation picturing (pun intended) the photo above of any standard movie theater screening room salon. Whereby the photo just above this paragraph showcasing these airliner passenger rear top head board LCD monitor screens. Just cut and paste that image to every rear seating row of a movie theater screening room salon. All synced in visual display in whats being presented on the big projector screen itself. These seats have the option to mute the local monitor volume if they so choose. Especially if gamers are wearing a headset microphone accessory. (As a rental or personally brought in to use) Since these games to be played aren't just played locally but On the Cloud.

Present day "Onlive.com" is a similar cloud based gaming platform for PC / Mac / Tablet / Smartphone gamers and their propriety video game console. Account holders with Onlive.com (Link) can unlock particular game titles to play solo or cloud based multiplayer games. Today's movie theaters as a novelty like I stated earlier have Xbox 360 Parties like at this Cineplex Theater Chain (Link) operator offers today.  What I'm describing here is far more sophisticated than that which can include the Oculus VR Helm (Link) as a rental accessory for gamers. So instead of playing your cloud based game on yesterdays 2D flat screen. Play it with a 3D virtual reality helmet that hooks up to the under the seat kiosk hardware.



Speaking of the seating itself it'll have a Rumble Pack built into the seat. Like any present day video game console handset controller offers. Maybe if the movie theater chain operator wants all the bells and whistles. They could splurge on a Scent Emitter housed again under the seat itself. Even the recent Xbox One from Microsoft spent over $100 million dollars just to do research and development on the hand controller. Of which they explored having a built-in projector with a olfactory output scent emitter. Polygon.com Xbox One Hand Controller Explored Having A Scent Emitter (Link, Article date Nov. 19th, 2013)

Continuing about hand controllers these gamer arena seating can have one or two configurations of input game controllers. Most common at the end of each armchair will be a one hand controller with recessed buttons and a joystick. Durable for the punishing treatment gamers are known to dish out on arcade kiosks or video game consoles. Or two that aforementioned fold down tray like a airliner passenger rear seating. When folded down showcases a keyboard and a stationary trackball and not a mouse which needs constant movement. I swear personally as an old school MMO (Massively multiplayer online game) and FPS (First person shooter) multiplayer gamer with my Logitech Marble Trackball Mouse. Aiming in a shooter be it PvE (Player versus environment) or PvP (Player versus player) is essential for me with the fine precision of rolling a trackball with one or two fingers. None of that drama with scrolling mice across a mouse pad. Aside from my decade long testimonial of a trackball for gaming purposes.

Business operation wise if theater arena gaming does take off. Much like the movie studios pay for the marketing of movies with national commercial trailers for movie goers. Game publishers can do in kind promoting new games like they usually do but with a focus to be played in such arena theaters for gamers. Gamers attending such a retrofitted movie theater by a local operator can be issued member ID cards. Where game time can be purchased on site or in advance sorta like using time on a desktop computer at an Internet Cafe. Account holders can also have particular games including MMO ones unlocked via the Cloud gaming platform. All offered by the cloud games catalog library of whatever is on sale or fully priced.

To encourage a local community of gamers such a movie theater operator can promote local clans and guilds to organize. Offering tournaments, prize promotions ala contests and sweepstakes (games from their cloud library, cash, accessories for the theater arena, trips to a Comic-Con, etc...), even gamer fund raiser marathons for a local or national charity. Which if the movie theater operator could go as far finding corporate or local small business sponsors for the charity event that cater to such a demographic.

Many of today's multiplex movie theater chains have back-up concession stands that are rarely used. Perhaps if a mega blockbuster movie showing is occurring. Otherwise that space goes unused for months at a time. How about opening up a Gamer Theater Arena gift shop in such a floor space. Catering to servicing the accounts of such a branded experience besides selling merchandising and accessories or rentals (ie Oculus VR helms) to gamers. Which will mean having a sales customer service clerk on site besides at least one technical staffer. To deal with any hiccups of glitching equipment in the screening salons of the arena's.

This is how I envision such a "Gaming Theater Arena" taking shape for a local movie theater operator. Or if indeed a stand alone series of such arena's are created. As IMAX first started in a piece meal fashion taking years before becoming popular. These gamer theater arena's will also Revolutionize the Dead Arcade Industry of the 20th century business model. Where gamers can play solo, local or online multiplayer via the cloud gaming platform, and certainly massively multiplayer online games networked via the Internet. Maybe an exclusive deal can be made with a particular game publisher ala Microsoft, Sony, or Electronic Arts for instance. In helping to defray the marketing costs and playing their games exclusively via the cloud game infrastructure platform.

Here's hoping the future is here now since the technology for this already exists. Just the vision and the cajones to pull it off is lacking. Since companies like "Audience Entertainment" (Link, Techcrunch.com article link of Aug. 21st, 2014) are highlighting a SDK (Studio Development Kit). For movie goers or music concert attendees to be a macro motion sensor input for commercials and basic games with interactive media.

"Jewels of Truth" Reading From: "A Soul Odyssey Within, Volume 1

Hello All,

Today's reading from the published "Jewels of Truth" series is from Volume one on page 36. Regarding the topic of Innovators how they are the ones to make living more plausible by whatever industry they represent as a whole. As you may know I lump myself as one although I'm more in the amateur camp thus far. Nonetheless here at "Atrayo's Oracle" there are over 180 freely accessible conceptual innovations going back as far as July 2005.

So enjoy today's topic, thank you.

-----------------------------------

Innovators:

Imagineers as designers are the apex of Innovators they are the visionaries, futurists, and creators at large. Out performing others with creativity and able to offer solutions to execute on those ideas. A genuine Ideopraxist in all regards in expression and fulfillment on the needs of any society. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

Jewels of Truth Statements & Favorite Quotes of the Month

Hello All,

As of late I am now realizing I've come close to completing Volume 5 of the "Jewels of Truth" series of spiritual wisdom. (at #1806 in count out of #1825) I wanted to relay beyond the 365 in count for each of my first two volumes in the series. This blog site of "Atrayo's Oracle" has 404 "Jewels of Truth" statements included going all the way back to July 2005. So it goes without saying you my readers are welcome to dig through this freely offered resource. In order to enlighten and to broaden your personal faiths of whichever esteemed traditions are yours with God(dess). I always emphasize the universal and inclusive in all my spiritual wisdom writings. For the Angels in me would have it no other way by their holy grace as I channel their inner light through my writings.

Today's trio of "Jewels of Truth" statements are on the topics of: Religion, Signs, and Simplicity. In the series of #1051-1053 written originally in mid August 2010. So please enjoy them and may they expand your desires in the divine in each of us. Even if you disagree with part or all of what I'm espousing herein with my dharma.

-----------------------------------------------

Religion:

1051) As we call "Jesus the Christ" the "King of Kings". We also call our Father who art in Heaven and within our souls the "God of gods". We do this in praise and in sincere truth for how we may worship our maker God. By giving thanks that "Jesus the Christ" has come our way as savior to many and prophet as Isa (Jesus) to others yet still.

No matter our origin in spiritual faith or religious traditions we are all one as brothers and sisters within the "Spirit of God" as our witness. We must not forget this sweet eternal truth lest we repeat the generations of perceived separation that promotes misunderstanding, if not worse violence. We are the masters of fate to some or the fools of the ages to many more. What we truly are is loved by God our Creator. No matter how dear and in what manner we choose to return this love back to him in our mutual sacred worship of his majestic presence. Blessed be the peace makers for Heaven and Earth is fully real to them as a living grace. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.


Signs:

1052) There is a stark difference between a superstition and an omen of fate. A superstition can often lead to a very false belief from an obsessive place of fear. That such and such an occurrence is indicative of certain influences to cause havoc in a person's life. That only compulsive actions or resources are the only panacea to avert an ill effect of a superstition. This all stems from the era of ignorance where magic was misunderstood. By foolish people making attempts to appease the gods in such vain expressions. Superstitions are coping mechanisms of the mind by giving a false belief power over their own reality, if not plain immunity from an occurrence.

Unlike an omen where an event can be a showcase of a spiritual signal from the ancestors of things yet to come. Only with forethought and appreciation can the signs be deciphered with wisdom and humility. Omens are sign posts of a neutral fashion be they blessed or cautionary revealing to those in audience of what may be just around the bend. If good news then do indeed appreciate the benediction in your life with a silent prayer of thanks to God. Otherwise a cautionary indication is a portent to be alert and aware of your surroundings listening deeply to your intuition. Often omens are manifested by coincidences where they are the subtle happenings for the spiritually astute to listen with respect to what is being shown. Lest one invites misfortune to herald a worse experience farther along the way.

Be sensible do not go out of your way by causing a panic when a cautionary omen appears. The omen may be more sublime in symbolism then actual objective acts that occur. Always give thanks even for the cautionary omens for your guardian angels and your loved ones in spirit are closer to you than any misfortune. Be still and feel such a grace and allow it to inspire you to live well and in good order. Amen.  ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.


Simplicity:

1053) For those that seek to accomplish great things in a lifetime. It is for those tasks to conduct yourselves in a simple if not a sublime outlook. The reason for this is that all great things that are truly simple are genius in disguise by a universal scope in all things. The contrary is also true that all complicated convoluted expressions lead to malfunctions of various orders of like kind.

The wisdom to know this difference for a designer or an engineer is often pivotal in the philosophy of creation of much needed endeavors. In ones personal life such an attitude leads often to subtle shifts that embark the person to a place of holy wonder and appreciation. Leading others in such an outlook instills constructive values of foresight and preparation. Be humble with gratitude when living by such a tenet of experiences in ones life. Be it to positively affect yourselves or any organization you swear your attention upon with time in terms of management and productivity. No matter the intent of your strategic proposals that is being sought after.  ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

Am I now seeking human approval, or God's approval? ... If I were still pleasing people, I would not be a servant of Christ. ---Galatians 1:10

Do not condemn self. Condemning of self is as much of an error as condemning others.
                                                                                       ---Edgar Cayce. Reading 3292-1

Where does it all lead? What will become of us? ... It leads to each other. We become ourselves. ---Patti Smith.

We will be known forever by the tracks we leave. ---Dakota proverb.

If you have much, give of your wealth; If you have little, give of your heart. ---Arab proverb.

"Jewels of Truth" Reading From: The Wayfarer of the Soul, Volume 2

Hello All,

I hope your enjoying the week thus far wherever you may reside globally. Here in my part of Florida practically all week its been soggy with rainfall. My heart goes out to those on the pacific Mexican coastline and the American south west. That a tropical storm named "Polo" is bearing down on them. It seems this year the eastern seaboard of the United States has been thankfully hurricane free. Not so much for Mexico's pacific shoreline this year.

Today's topic is on Objectivity how the world wouldn't function very well without a balanced approach in living. Paying full mind to our human subjective mindset. That also often has equal credence in how we conduct our worldly affairs on this planet of ours.

Do enjoy today's spiritual wisdom statement from my 2nd Volume.

------------------------------------------------

Objectivity:

The subjective thought is inherent to the human spirit. For without subjectivity humanity would be divorced from his or her own soul. Albeit objectivity is a must in maintaining order otherwise chaos ensues with a purely subjective mindset. Although a harmony needs to be struck between the subjective and objective capacities of the mind. In that the "Kingdom of God" matures in its own grace by the deeds of a balanced outlook of the faithful and the secular. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

Jewels of Truth Statement: "How God Is Omnipresent Within Creation"

Hello All,

Now that Summer is coming to a close in our hemisphere of the world. I wanted to offer a little progress report of my spiritual writings at least in terms of manuscripts. I'm close to completing writing Volume 5 of the series. Being only 25 statements away from reaching another set of 365 spiritual wisdom statements. That's why I offer the numeral count by each statement for those interested in keeping track. My first draft of my manuscript from Volume 3 is being pieced together at a current count of 212 out of 365. Once the draft is presentable in completion I'll move onto my publisher iUniverse for it to enter production of a sort.

I just wanted to share that tidbit with you my readers. Although volumes 1 & 2 of the "Jewels of Truth" series are available for purchase online in paperback, Kindle, Nook, and general e-book formats.

Today's spiritual wisdom statement is on the topic of Metaphysics in the series #1797. Written last Sunday as a matter of fact. I was so moved by the inspiration of it I almost posted it alongside Mr. Robin Williams memorial. However I thought that would detract from the limelight of entries allowing each to garner attention in their own time.

Do enjoy as always and may you deepen your own personal faith traditions whatever they may be. From my inspired spiritual inquires within the divine in each of us. Namaste.

----------------------------------------------------

Metaphysics:

1797)  All time is always Now metaphysically. Meaning every "Now" moment from the dawn of time throughout the sunset of time is happening right "Now"! Totality has stacked metaphysically time like an Infinite set of Russian dolls each within the other.

When God uttered "Let there be Light"! (Genesis 1:3) This is the identical "Now Holy Instant" that event is, has, and will occur again. The present as a phenomena has been construed as a linear event. By adding the past and the future to it as perspectives. In spiritual fact the present isn't linear but non-linear in depth as a spiral ascending and descending in circumference.

All of time is an Infinite bubble often called eternity. To further complicate this comprehension God originates from a realm of "No Time or No Space" as a continuum. As being in a voided realm the Absolute Alpha and Omega is able to accomplish being Omnipresent metaphysically. So to reiterate God the Creator as the Great Witness is with all right "Now! We as his collective divine children made in his Image and Likeness in truth. Are capable of mystically tapping into God(dess) as if with a virtual network of the soul forever as eternal spiritual entities ourselves. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

Jewels of Truth Statement: "Memorial for Robin Williams the Wise Fool"


Hello All,

I seldom write memorials utilizing my gift of psychic automatic writing unless it was a celebrity I held in very high esteem. So far I haven't been asked to write one for anyone I know personally. The first celebrity I started this trend was last year with Michael Jackson "The King of Neverland" on April 29th 2013 (Link) Now I continue once more with another very bright soul I loved deeply from afar as a spiritual brother. As many in the world we adored his brand of comedy although seldom knew the depth of his internal suffering. Now that he has been immortalized into our minds and hearts he would probably enjoy if we made a joke on his passing. But alas that isn't my gift, however what follows below is indeed my gift to him and all of us. Written originally at the end of August this year.

Do enjoy in solemn peace.

---------------------------------------



1794) Mr. Robin Williams ended his life in a misguided attempt to find a peace which he needed more than sanity. For he found sanity to be lukewarm as a frail effort to fit in with society. So he clowned his way to stardom seeking to bring a native joy in his heart to the world at large. His success was completely renowned although sometimes the initial peace he sought eluded his soul.

The greater the victory professionally the louder the laughter and the praise for his comedic genius. Perhaps his greatest love was for his children. They were his remarkable joy come alive through his smile. He often may have lamented his poor choices in how to bury his suffering. Yet he was forever seeking to create laughter in each of us. Whether to hide his pain or to find redemption in our shared mirth with him. We as his fans no matter how far apart we may be. Loved him dearly now and always for having his brand of comedy in our lives.

Causing us to remember the joy it inflicted onto our combined funny bone. His many persona's were all tied to his eternal kindness. Many were fortunate to experience through his endeavors as a humanitarian and an artist laughing at large. We are the better for his joy and we shall always have a smile with a childish wink to the perpetual clown of a giant heart.

May our love heal you with the peace you have found in God's embrace oh Wise Fool. Amen.                                             ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.
