ConsoleDEMO is a virtual prototype of a future mobile game console created on time when handheld devices, especially gaming devices, were just taking their first steps. ConsoleDEMO had two-fold research function. First and foremost it allowed users to have a look and test the possibilities of handheld gaming consoles in a virtual environment, and also enabled researches to explore the form and function of such a device.
Secondly ConsoleDEMO worked as a thorough test for the possibilities game engines could provide for academic and business oriented testing and research purposes. ConsoleDEMO was made with Unreal Engine which proved to work well and showed great potential for using game engines as testing and research tools.
