Bergtau's Law: As an online discussion grows longer, the probability that somebody will mention Godwin's Law approaches 1.
Hitler wasn't all bad, I mean, he DID kill Hitler.
An accident is something that you did not mean to do at all. A mistake is something that you regret doing.
Anyone seen the gadget show where Sansung made this "interactive window"? May be everything will become like that very soon.
Yes it is a bit like the holo keyboards and such.
Right, as the world goes, is only in question between equals in power, while the strong do what they can and the weak suffer what they must.- Thucydides
There is a modern myth that people have always tended towards democracy, constitutions, electoral rights; but in truth, love of freedom has never been the predominant note of popular politics. At most times, popular demand has been for a strong government.- Eugen Weber
Virtual reality technology that puts you inside the movie.
Imagine a movie that has one extra character every scene. A character that is meaningless to the plot, never says anything and never moves out of his place. A different such character for every scene according to the plot. And that character is the viewer in 1st person participating more or less.
Imagine war movies where you are one of the soldiers. Your alter ego does things independent of your will but you see though his eyes and the main movie action is always nearby so you can participate.

It is not the count of your posts, but the quality of your posts that matter... luckily, I have both. ^_<
I would imagine sensory stimulation via electromagnetic frequencies and all that good stuff.
Contacts.glasses with images (augmented reality) already exist and it is still part of the digital era, no real change in concept as the idea is the same as it was 100 years ago, just medium really.
Virtual Reality Porn. And then humanity will die out since we'll stop procreating.
Nah, we will leave VR for five minutes and give a quickie. xDVirtual Reality Porn. And then humanity will die out since we'll stop procreating.
What I want is a combination of something like the Google Project Glass with a hypersensitive ear-mounted microphone. The Project Glass tech would be shrunk down to a contact lens, or kept as a pair of glasses if you don't feel comfortable wearing the lens, and the microphone would function like a set of ear buds. The two would be able to capture video and audio, essentially recording memories. These would be uploaded to a device that only you have access to. It would take social media to the next level, with people being able to share their experiences in the purest form outside of replicating the chemical processes in the brain.
Virtual reality should be feasible pretty soon, given the level of computing power in most consumer level PC's and video game consoles. I would fully expect for the next console generation, or whatever follows after that, to have the hardware capacity required to make virtual reality come to fruition. We're already seeing something approaching VR with the Oculus Rift.
the google glasses look pretty promising, guess smartphones and very small pc´s will become headsetstyle devices with maybe a processing unit in your bag or pocket
I personally don't really see the appeal of virtual reality. I think augmented reality could be the next big thing; maybe not for games, but for practical purposes. You'd also have an excuse to wear Adam Jensen's shades, but remember, you did ask for them.
If you are particularly bold, you could use a Shiny Ditto. Do keep in mind though, this will infuriate your opponents due to Ditto's beauty. Please do not use Shiny Ditto. You have been warned.
I wouldnt mind some sort of virtual-reality bound game.
