I have played more games than the average person, so when I saw Sword Art Online I couldn't(Still cant) stop obsessing about the possibilities. Now when I try to go back to playing my regular games they just don't keep my attention like they use to... I have a good example from the SAO Light Novel. ;)

As long as it couldn't be used to fry my brain like in SAO I'd be willing to try it out

Though I think I would want a way to communicate with the 'outside world'
I'm easily caught up in video games as it is so I'd rather not say "Oh I'll play for an hour" put the nervegear on and wake up the next day

I think there's also a lot of sciencey things that need to be brought up about the Nevegear first

It has to be immersive as possible! Any form of outside communication would ruin it! I think it would be pretty difficult to lose your grasp on time because there will be a 24 hour clock on almost everything.

Unless Sony, and other researchers make a break through with their ultrasound research before late 2020's then Nano-Bots are our best hope for a "Nerve Gear" like experience. Will no one want to play Sword Art Online by then?

Eh, Something like Nerve Gear would be way too complex, anything shutting off nervous system past your neck is just asking for you to go into cardiac arrest before the loading screen even starts >.>

If it really came out, I would just rush into the shop, get me one copy, immediately install the game, put the Nerve Gear on, and go into Virtual Reality.

I have tried the Rift, it's awesome. I've seen the things people are developing, such as the treadmill, the full body motion tracking, they are coming very far very quickly. I mean, this has all been developed before, but now it's on the consumer level. FINALLY! I can imagine 10 years from now. If I'm not in a VR world in 20 years i'll kill myself. I'm sticking to it.

It's going to be expensive, but I'm going to get one. I want to support anyone that takes a risk and innovates with new stuff like this. Oculus Rift sounds like the first major step towards taking video games and maybe even regular entertainment to the next level.

If the conversation still isn't over despite having a month pass, I'd like to jump in saying that since I was a kid I've always wanted to develop a virtual reality that closely resembled lucid dreaming... After reading through the comments describing a couple of the hindrances I got even more interested and more determined by the amount of people who wanted such a thing to happen..

I'm still young. I'm technically still a "kid", so to speak - but that just means that I can make steps up until the day I die - a very long time, I hope.

As a result, I just would appreciate a lot of feedback on the possibility of a virtual reality machine that would 1) void the brain processing to muscles (but still allow blood flow signals somehow) to simulate a "sleep state", 2) monitor all brain waves produced by the brain and manipulate it to satisfy the "gaming experience", and 3) as someone said earlier, trick the brain into thinking a world that has rules does not have any.

If this makes any sense, please reply and lob the idea back and forth with me - my life's dream sorta depends on this!
