AUSTIN, Texas — As the floor rumbled beneath my feet, I pulled back a dart in my right hand and paused before releasing it at the video screen in front of me. “HIT!” the screen in front of me shouted in all caps text, as I popped a moving virtual balloon, and pumped my hand in the air.

I was playing Flash Darts, a game still in the concept stage, at SXSW’s Sony Wow tent, where the electronics giant sets up shop annually to showcase how its technologies could be applied in the future. I was in the second of three rounds of darts, where the difficulty of hitting the moving targets increased sequentially, and the haptic vibration in the floor below me rose as well.
