Hey.
I came here from b.net after a few Floods invited me. None of them post on either b.net nor here anymore, which is sad. I was still active on b.net until for some bizarre reason, b.net admins locked out people who have not played Destiny. Even if you wanted to post on the offtopic section. After that, I fully moved here and have not returned to b.net since.
Please come play Halo with me.
While the possibilities are very exciting - first and foremost for people with disabilities. We can give blind people sight and deaf people hearing.

There is also the spooky aspect of what if you get a virus? Could this malicious software hijack your senses and make you experience pain or something else that can cause damage?

Much as I hate SAO for being derivative on other series who've handled literally every concept better, it is the most main stream example. There's only so much immersion before this 'game' has the potential to take over your life. Then we get into Ghost in the Shell's superior perspective where reality itself has the potential to 'break', leaving you in a sort of limbo where nothing is at it seems and anyone could be fucking with you at any moment, because you have no actual control. Who's to say they can't reinvent your life from the ground up, forcing every fear and failure you've ever experienced to wear you down, and so you find yourself in an endless loop of torment because of some monsters?

I mean, it can't be worse than real-life, right?

I like hugs and making the world a better place. That and guns. Lots and lots of guns.
Topic with a lot of broad angles to talk about. I could see it being beneficial for medical reasons, quite a bit actually. Anybody dealing with anxiety or needing therapy of some kind. I can also see it being abused or addictive however. If internet and social media is any indicator, there's your proof. And I can't even begin to fathom the long term diseases that'd crop up.

One of the newer ones cropping up from smartphones lately is coined as digital dimentia. That arises from just brain re-wiring from constant usage. If we're talking full sensory overrides for convincing VR so that users don't get uncanny valley feelings, then I'd imagine you'd open windows to creating something like cognitive disconnects from reality.

Like any tool we make, it has the capacity for something good, but we're too retarded as a species to properly utilize much before we end up goofing it. With some of the newer tech coming out these days, it'll probably be critical that clear rules and boundries are established, which I know probably won't happen.
It still must be done. It would be fun. All the anime for people who are into it.

It's not even really a question of must. Eventually somebody will get the idea and they'll have the resources to make it happen. Yeehaw to the wonders of a new marketable thing.
I know. I was just bumping the thread. I'm sure it'll happen. Sooner than we think. It may have already happened but the curtain hasn't been drawn back yet.

I think what would be more spooky would be horror games. Masochism on another level.

I mentioned the servers being open for only a portion of the week specifically to keep people from having their lives taken over by virtual reality. Ready Player One had it right. I don't think it would be like Ghost in the Shell.

At least in that case you would know that its designed and tested for entertainment. What I'm talking about is someone injecting a virus into a piece of software that leads to unexpected things or worse - hurts the player. Think of it like a patch for Tesla that screws up the auto-pilot feature on purpose or a firmware update for someone's pace-maker that makes you have arrhythmic heart-beats or straight up kills you on purpose.

This biotech stuff has some potential for very dangerous effects.

It will be done in a safe way. People are smart. I don't even know how a virus would survive in living tissue.

I don't understand. Was he looking for the perfect kiss?

I mean, the software layer.

You hook up a device to directly stimulate your brain. So say, someone hacks one of these games or w/e and instead of you experiencing something expected, your brain gets blasted with flashing images or idk.

If you bend your mind towards the challenge, the skill will follow in your hands

I don't know what the technology would be like. I understand though. Still, it would be fun.
