The future of gaming is looking pretty crazy — especially if everything in this video from Siggraph’s Emerging Technologies preview comes to exist.

All of this tech comes from Siggraph 2014, a computer graphics and interactive technology conference that’s currently underway in Vancouver.

That’s a lot of cool stuff. Can you imagine having holograms play an active part in our gaming experiences? And what about that Pixie Dust thing? Imagine how well that could work with a rhythm game. Of course, nothing touches Birdly, the flying simulator that could have all of us flapping virtual wings and taking to the virtual skies.

I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty hyped for the future of gaming right now.
