    =ENTERTAINMENT TECHNOLOGY=

    Even in the Fringe, entertainment is a prime pastime to quell any boredom with the wasting of leisure time. Both an idle activity and a career for many,
    entertainment has become popularized throughout the galaxy as cultures unified and the standard of living in the galactic races increased. Other interface techniques have also emerged such as that of hardlight touch interfaces and advanced motion tracking.​

    =HOLOGRAPHICS=

    One of the most prominent advancements in entertainments technology is that of holographics, the process of locking emitted photons in 3D space to display an image; replacing screens in many cases, holographics are useful for a variety of purposes including real-time video, video game graphics, monitors, advertisement, and more. Holographics are used by nearly every advanced civilization present today, utilized by Humans and Apex for entertainment and display information, and even perfected by the Hylotl entertainment and art industry.​

    =Photonic Molecular Holography (PMH)=
    The primary mode of holography, the PMH technique utilizes special projectors that generate photonic molecules bound together via electromagnetic charge, causing them to lock together in 3D space to produce an image; more advanced projector modules can modify the photonic molecular wavelength to have different colors, many containing denser-packed photonic molecules to provide a higher resolution image with vivid coloration, sometimes even indistinguishable from real, tangible matter. More advanced forms of this holography, as well as that which is capable of interactive movement, tend to be more complex in computational aspects due to the complexity of the modelling, and even larger holographic images require of course larger projectors, and ultimately, more power.

    =SIMULATED REALITY=

    As technology improved with the advancements of digital rendering and the refinement of optics, designers and artists have made use of this realm of technology to craft entire digital worlds, sprawled out in front of users with such detail that if they were to wake up in it, they might never even question its authenticity.​

    =VIRTUAL REALITY=
    One of the most popular forms of simulation and gaming, virtual reality involves tapping into a user's neurological organ system and 'tricking' it into perceiving reality as one that is not present in the real world, using advanced computational and programming techniques paired with modern neurological advancements to give simulations that are completely identical with that of real life, even being capable of replicating unique feelings such as all the senses, intuition, and even pain. Advancements in artificial intelligence even allow for the use of 'NPCs' that can even appear in the same likeness of real players, in many games even being capable of outsmarting the player without advanced meta-knowledge or set programming. In addition, because of the vivid detail VR games can give, they can often be addictive as a method of 'escaping reality'.

    =AUGMENTED REALITY=
    Augmented reality, while similar to virtual reality in its use of presented visuals to trick the brain into believing the imaginary, diverges in one major way. While virtual reality completely immerses its user into a pretend world through the use of headsets and other auxiliary equipment to create a false world around them with fully simulated surroundings, augmented realty, as the name suggests, augments real life. Through the use of devices such as smart glasses, or even taking advantage of the camera software built nearly universally into datapads, computers, and phones, augmented reality projects digital renderings into the real world in front of a person. Used widely in both the entertainment industry, particularly in video games which try to blur the lines between life and fiction, and business, AR can allow for someone to sit at an empty table, put on a pair of glasses or hold up their device, and suddenly see a group of friends or colleagues in front of them.

    =VIDEOGAMES=
    With the standardized installation of a Galactic Nexus internet system, online gaming even across the entire galaxy has become a possibility, along with other advancements such as higher-speed processors and programming breakthroughs. Advancements have allowed polygon models to be more than quintupled in detail, and have even allowed extremely high-quality voxel modelling with advanced physics and real-time simulation. Like with Virtual Reality, videogames are capable of utilizing artificial or virtual intelligences.

    =ART AND MUSIC=

    Even in modern times, culture has still found its way into our everyday lives; the fine arts have become a prime method to display emotion and message as they always have been for millennia, and with new advancements and materials, art and music has advanced even further. Higher technology has found its way into the hands of aspiring artists, and new computer software has allowed art and music to be made with greater ease to be shown to the entire galaxy via the nexus. Mediums of art have also arose, such as modelling with different materials and even holograms, as well as videogame models and textures. In terms of actual stage effects and such, introduction of new technologies such as holography has allowed the display of dynamic, vivid imagery, including new materials and more.

    =LITERATURE=
    While many may question the relevance of written literature in the 33rd century, eloquent words still hold true to meaning and can invoke deep feeling; with the advent of the Nexus Internet, fine arts including that of different types of literature have been spreading rapidly as the creative pool of the entire galaxy conglomerated to share their culture; text knowledge is capable of being stored and cataloged in an instant with the use of quantum computing, and advanced reading technology has perfected text-to-speech and speech-to-text processing. Some innovating authors have even taken to use technology such of that of virtual reality to enhance the mood of their text through altered sensory inputs such as sounds, smells, feelings, and more.
