    In the 90's that was not Virtual Reality.

    Believe me, when we have Virtual Reality like in the anime Sword Art Online it will catch on.

    How about developing software inside a "virtual reality" marvel, being able to work while you are sleep?

    Eh, we need sleep for a good reason, so I wouldn't want to be working while sleeping. Maybe if we could incorporate it into dreaming or something, but other than that I really wouldn't want it.

    I guess we need to figure out how to make projected content interactable unless we already have, wonder how something like that would work?

    You think just like me!

    Can you imagine living forever in a game like SAO, with those beautiful zones where Kirito sleeps under a tree?

    It's my dream!

    If it's like the PC version of skyrim, you *could* just get some of the adult only mods.... best of both!

    In all seriousness, while the chip in the brain thing sounds nice, I doubt that would happen en masse for quite some time. With as much as I enjoy technology, I'm not ready for a chip in my head just to watch a new movie. There's something to be said to sit in a couch with some friends and laughing at the dumb jokes that are in movies these days.

    VR's are a likely possibility, but I think perfection of 3D technology will come first. It's good, but there is plenty of room for improvement.

    Oculus Rift.

    Hell, they're already making porn for it.

    The world is full of evil and lies and pain and death, and you can't hide from it... You can only face it. The question is, when you do, how do you respond? Who do you become?

    Oculus Rift will be awesome, i saw yesterday the videos from CES 2013 and it's much better than i thought. If they can make it with a really good 3D, 1080P and 60 FPS in the next few years as they are saying, it will be awesome.

    Screens will become a thing of the past for gaming.

    Probably better implementation of current technology. Specifically Smell-o-vision or having special effects within the movie environment. Car Chases would have the smell of burning rubber, rain on the screen would result in a mist of water being sprayed on the audience. A scene in a restaurant would have all the different smells of food.

    until we can mass produce and manipulate on demand holographic technology and working force fields wont get a "holodeck" type environment, Also we do not currently understand enough of how the brain works to start messing with cybernetic implants for direct connection to the net.

    At this stage, it's probably like one of those very early touchscreens that needs to re-calibrated every boot-up and still lacks any form accuracy.

    And I'm aware that thinkgeek has a product on sale like it, but it's highly impractical. With a phone or a tablet pc you want portability, not extra hardware to carry along, and it's probably highly unreliable due it's dependence of a flat surface.

    The next step is probably going towards the eye projection/display like the Oculus Rift or the Google glasses. After that is making the input to the device more convenient, probably by taking the input device or method out of the picture and have it pick up signals directly from your brain, rather than have it rely on voice commands or a controller.
    But that's all a long way off, considering how many years we've had voice recognition and how shoddy it still is.

    Yep.. I don't care how next get or "hip" or awesome it is, if it needs surgery or something implanted, I'm out. Not only for principle but also because technology gets outdated soon and it would require updates, until you look like one of those aging celebrities who have gone too far with plastic surgeries..
