i'd love it if nervegear were real, but I'd be uncomfortable knowing it places you in a comatose state while you're in the game.

Just finished watching this series and Nerve Gear is definitely something I would love to get into, mostly because it would give me the opportunity to lead multiple lives. Something outside the safety of finding a practical, decent paying, I know i'll always have a job career, and make a reality that I can mold literally with my own virtual hands. Although, the technology that this would require we are many years away from... a helmet that could establish a link with the electrostatic patterns and waves of the human brain is definitely possible, we monitor brain waves all the time. The hard part is creating a "fake reality" that would trick the brain into thinking there were rules in something that it knows isn't real. Nerve Gear and the whole virtual reality scene remind me alot of my attempts to Lucid Dream, molding my own reality in my subconscious "dream realm". Although, even that is extremely difficult to even edge in the direction I want things to go in my dreams. I can almost see something along the lines of what happened to Abihiko at the end of the series, where the story tells of him sending his subconscious out into the internet, despite committing suicide.. this in theory would be possible because they ARE electro-static waves, but to establish electro-static waves as data, that's like trying to merge artificial intelligence with real intelligence. In actuality, our brains are just using our body's to function. The brain sends a million messages a day to different parts of the body so that it may survive, thrive, feel, pick something up, type on my keyboard. I wonder if it's theoretically possible to have a brain send a million messages a day to different servers, acrossed computers, and enter commands or create prompts. Artificial intelligence and security systems create commands and carry out processes alike our brains send commands and carry out processes within our bodies. The intricate part is always going to be putting neuroscience and computer science on the same level field. Maybe our brains weren't meant to be tampered with in the first place. :c.

I wouldn't mind having something like that...but it would have to be 'like' SAO and have that 'Mirror' option since seeing guys run around as young girls would be vary....weird. An if you couldn't be logged out of the game your body can be kept alive for some time on iv and what not but you would HAVE to log out..and like someone said above they can implement hardwired kill commands after X amount of hours and it wouldn't work untile X amount of hours has passed. The Rift system seems pretty cool from my stand point even tho it needs a lot of work still in the head pivot "like they said during an interview". But if I really had to choose...I would choose to live in a fantasy world after a hard days work in RL for like..5 hours, time to unwind lol.

Most people would embrace the idea of fully functional Nerve Gear, but there absolutely must be safety precautions: time limits on sessions, forced breaks, several means to log out, no real pain or death, etc.

Of course there is always the possibility of safety measures failing, but I wouldn't mind that risk. Personally, I would dive into Sword Art Online knowing the potential risks involved. That's just me though.

Don t like the idea at all Kids are too lazy and fat as it is already using something like Nerve Gear certainly would not help.
A kind of Holodeck where you need to actually run climb jump etc now that would be something cool

My question is, how would time pass between the real world and the gaming world? If you're logged into a SAO-like game for, let's say, two days, would two days also pass in the real world? Furthermore, the brain wouldn't be able to rest, because it's constantly receiving stimulation from the NerveGear, so how are you supposed to sleep? There'd have to be time limits, but I suspect gamers won't be happy about being forcibly logged off in a middle of a raid.

And without time limits, wouldn't the game be much more addictive? You could live your entire life out in a virtual reality. That personally freaks me out. It's like in that movie Avatar...you'd just waste away in real life. Nope, no thanks, not for me.

It would need to be a 24 hour clock like they used in SAO/ALO for obvious reasons. I don't know for sure but I think if you "Sleep" in the game your brain is allowed to "Rest". They did show characters sleeping at regular hours in SAO. A large majority of people would rather live 24/7 in a game away from the struggles of the real world. Myself included haha!

Hmmm, an interesting thought, As cool as it sounds, i dont think it would be very good to play it for hours on end xD. But I'd totally try it if they can work out all the kinks and stiff. but i dont like the idea of being completely comatose.

its always an interesting thought but if you were a hardcore gamer could you imagine what it would be like if you just laid in your bed wearing that stuff most of the day. since you cant get up and walk around with it on after all. you'd get bed sores probably like the sick and elderly and your body would probably hurt like hell from never being active at all any more lol as cool as i think that would be to submerse yourself fully into a game it wouldnt be healthy i imagine :p

Ah, thanks for reminding me! I totally forgot the characters slept in game. It would be so disorienting, though. *__* Still, that makes sense.

I still enjoy PC gaming, I am in no rush. Not to say i don't think a sword art online game wouldn't be completely awesome!
