The Oculus Rift is actually pretty similar, if you think about it. Your brain can trick you into thinking you're actually there. I've heard stories where people actually felt physical pain because of the effects. I wouldn't know myself; I'm still trying to get my hands on one. It's interesting how it works. It sure is no Nerve Gear, but it's pretty close.

I'd say we're about 70 to 100 years out from an actual Nerve Gear Brain to Computer Interface that is safe for consumers. Before that, it'll just be military and scientific communities that will make use of it. It's always that way with new tech. The military and researchers get it first. It gets perfected, made safe, then a tame version of that tech is released for consumers.

Something else to think about.... if we do get full immersion technology... what is to stop something like Surrogates(2009) or Gamer(2009) from happening?

Like people cocooning themselves away from the real world and remotely operating as robotic drones.... Or using the tech to take over and remotely operate another person....
