If you're anything like me, you love new toys! Especially on day 1! So let's start our new realities next year.

Virtual Reality has made significant strides even though he hasn't had any ambitious official launches.

For those wondering what the difference is between Virtual and Augmented reality, is that augmented reality is like having technology overlap with the real world. Examples? Like Google Glass and Microsoft HoloLens.

Virtual Reality is strictly a virtual world, so you won't be walking around physically, it'll be like having a 3DS on your face. It's like being in a new world rather than blending it with your own.

Examples? Project Morpheus and Oculus Rift.

Now, which are you more excited for? Which one would you rather have?

It's arguable that augmented reality has practical and productive uses that virtual reality cannot provide. But Virtual Reality seems like a lot more fun to the average person. It works better for entertainment purposes.

Would you rather see dinosaurs in the real world with you or be IN a dinosaur world?! x3

Wait.... Those BOTH sound amazing! I can't choose!

For those curious, true sex is now possible in virtual reality environments, which means you can finally replace your baggage girlfriend with Hatsune or Nico! And you can actually bang them!

If you keep up with either of these technologies. Which one do you think is more productive? Which is more fun? Which would you choose?(assuming one is free to you).

I'll update this with links and video later! I'm SOO excited to start writing code for a Virtual Reality project! I can barely hold in my excitement! It feels like a new era is gonna start in 2016 for techno freaks everywhere.

I'm still curious which one is better for browsing the Internet.

Overlaying the Internet in the real world is useful. But being IN the Internet is useful as well.

If I had to pick one, because of my job(s). I'd go for the augmented reality, it has more uses.

Great! Let's hope we have an incident like in SAO and all the people stupid enough to use VR die. That will bring the numbers of all the morons down.

Meh, I'd probably get bored of it after 2-3 hours

Probably will still be another decade or two before it reaches the point of VR technology seen in movies and fiction and becomes availible to the masses.

But it will be cool being an old geezer in the future where everybody lives in the internet and be able to say I saw the birth of it.

Dammit I can see Facebook auto searching peoples faces and giving strangers too much info about you with augmented reality. Switched to Linux specifically to avoid others having control over my computer. Now I'm going to have to sabatoge searching algorithms on the internet. Hopefully I can hack these casuals and over clock their hardware just by walking past them.

VR sounds like a blast though.

We've had VR systems since the 90's, though..

I would very much like to see this technology. Also I am willing to bet people will do experiments to somehow have their minds trapped in it as well. But still, the idea of VR is very exciting.

That's a shame. But then if it's really expensive then hopefully it won't become a common thing.

I have vision problems and when I took off my glasses and tried out an Oculus, I couldn't see anything (it was actually worse than if I wasn't wearing glasses in the real world). I heard you can buy special lenses for the Oculus for bad vision, but when my glasses already cost $500+, I doubt it would be cheap enough to be worth buying.

I'll stick with augmented reality for now. Something like the day-to-day Accel World gear would be amazing.

Yes, she's normally a downer. But she stated that she comes off as an angry person most of the time anyway. Guess she's right?

@Eclaire, uhm.

I think someone else signed into your account...? Do you perhaps share by any chance?

As cool as this stuff is, for some reason or another they never take off.
