    I'm waiting for the holodeck. I won't need a computer anymore once that comes out.

    Full immersion can be something subjective. There are people who get incredibly immersed and stimulated by games, that it doesn't really matter if they are playing on SNES or with the oculus. Others not so much. If I'm allowed to be super-idealistic, I'd think that the ultimate virtual reality co-relates with neuroscience. Though we are way too far away from that. If we achieve it however, it will be the end of humanity as we know it.

    I still think Cellphones are the end of humanity as we know it... Those things are like a freakin' disease... So many addicts... Worse than the gamer addicts ever were.

    So true, Tai_MT!


    @OP: we know how to replicate experience for the 5 senses, but it's not just a matter of doing it. You have to accept it, like the uncanny valley, it sometimes feel weird. For now.

    My idea of full immersion is this: can you feel like you're doing something with your physical body, in a virtual world? This would be extremely disruptive if such a thing comes out..

    Such a thing is actually possible, and has already been done with bionic hands. Just merge the techs with input from the VR system.

    To this day the best is can do is pseudo 3d and surround sound. Through electrical impulses to the brain, we learned that we can trigger the senses (like smell of strawberries, seeing a tree, etc) It will take a while to learn how to give the illusion of every sense for everything and how to program it. And I don't think that it would to the best thing to do it the first place.

    @Palladinthug: Not that far, I'd bet. When I was a kid and watched Star Trek, I thought impossible for a computer to understand and respond to oral commands...

    You mean like in SAO?


    If so, then my guess is 10-20 years.

    Exactly like SAO. That's what I've been watchin that got me started thinking about it. I agree with Kanax, that it would totally change the entire world. If we cold create anything we wanted and have it bee real, nobody would stay in the real world anymore.

    No, it most likely won't be available to the public years after it has been discovered. You want to know why? Because it has military use. You can trap war slaves with it and/or read their minds. the fake king from the AlFheim Online would be the most realistic result of this technology.

    Yeah, even if it ever is released, I won't get involved in it for a while, because who knows what could happen? It'd only be a matter of time before someone creates the plot of SAO in real life.

    Something that powerful would never go unnoticed or unused by the evil people of the world. Where there is power there is evil.
