    Hope fully yes... If you've watched SAO, you're maybe hoping for something like it. I'm hoping to get a scholarship to Japan, I want to create games and hope to be success and continue to be a brain doctor.

    Yeah I absolutely do not want the level of immersion that .hack and SAO have. Cause, you know, being connected neurally totally worked out well for those involved.

    When they can :
    -create new and immerse games with a good control scheme
    -create new content such as live sporting events/movies
    -reduce the motion sickness aspect
    -make it affordable and have builders

    Then I think it has a chance

    I believe it will be. I would love to go into a game and experience it 1st person. That would be great and I can see it happening in my lifestyle.
  5. The future is closer to the systems seen in anime like Sword Art Online... Once we make more headway controlling systems via thought and receiving feedback, then we will be on the real path towards total immersion. Its something thats been slowly developing over the last few years.

    VR has huge potential. Just needs the support behind it. It's not going anywhere. Seems like it has more of realistic chance than Google Glass does.

    It could be the next computing platform used by everybody. The potential is there which is why Zuckerberg paid $2 billion for Oculus, but it could be a fad if the mainstream gets tired of it.

    I work in education and we are looking heavily into VR for teaching and learning for our students and teachers. I have been looking into gaming in the classroom and since VR has come out bigger we are testing all viable variants.

    Im really not a huge fan yet, i can see how its fun but i think there has to be a lot of use cases outside of gaming that i dont see possible yet. I can see it being like the Kinect and where its meant for gaming but it can do way more things.

    I think VR has huge potential, not only in the gaming arena, but also in television.

    Have we all forgotten the nightmare that 3D TV standards were? There's no wonder that no-one bought one, because you could never guarantee that anything you purchased later would work.

    With an open-sourced VR kit, you can create your own 3D TV experience, and then anyone can build a headset that meets those same standards.

    This is the only open-sourced VR headset out there, and hopefully it'll kickstart a revolution in how we not only play games, but also watch other media also.

    Not necessary, but the future.
    Too many people have seen it in Science Fiction for it not to happen.
    Look at the tablets (Just a dream a couple of years ago and now everywhere.)

    I believe the future has room for virtual reality. It will help society learn hands on activities like fixing a car or even repairing something.

    I think it's a good idea to pursue the technology, even if there's not really any super compelling application right now. Gotta push the envelope, right?

    I'm hoping that Virtual Reality will become the future
    s way of gaming. Not perse ending with headsets like the Oculus rift(which btw, I am pre ordering as soon as the consumer edition becomes available) but ends up going further, say.. ala Sword art online with totally emerging headsets.(without the death in sword art online :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:)

    VR has been around for awhile, but it's always been one of those cool things that no one knows anything about. With large companies supporting open source VR, it should give VR the kick it needs to become more than just a novelty. I have Google Cardboard and it only has small time novelty and beta apps, but even so, there is a plethora of uses for it. I think OSVR will get it in the hands of the developers that will take it beyond novelty and create polished and useful products.
