Admit it, this is EXACTLY why you want VR to become a thing

Couldn't care less about VR outside simulators. Now AR, that I want to become a thing.


I'm not so sure. The Game was a pretty f***'d up view of what a true AR game could be like... Not so sure I'd enjoy that. heh

Grew up on William Gibson, Bruce Sterling and Vernor Vinge. I'll be signing up for my transhuman card well before anyone in government has time to consider the true consequences and legislates tech into uselessness.

I want VR to become a thing because it's the first step on the long road to holodecks.

What you're describing isn't actually going to exist when "VR becomes a thing". It'll only happen as long as VR is a novelty.


Holodecks will NEVER be a thing. They're really inconvenient. What if you wanted to fight aliens while someone else was visiting Rome in the Holodeck? Or about more NSFW type things, wouldn't it get awkward quickly if someone else walked in? And it'd still be stupidly expensive to have.

Best case VR is something akin to SAO but more mental, something you slip on your head that induces you into a sort of dream state where images are being fed directly into your head as opposed to through your senses. Throw it some safety features and time dilation and it's perfect.

Actually, how about a flight simulator. Fighter jets in VR would definitely warrant a buy from me.

Nowadays we have portable devices and the internet. Anyone saving all that on their hard drive is a moron. Besides, your computer doesn't take up the size of a room, does it?
