• Question: Like in sword art online do you think that vitural reality headsets would exsist when your walking about but inside of a vitural reality headset?

      In the last few years, several large companies have made major strides in developing virtual reality technology. It probably won’t be long before many people are using them in their day-to-day lives, for work (e.g., training for specialist skills in dangerous situations) or leisure (especially gaming). Whether they are allowed on the street or not will probably be a legal issue that society will have to discuss soon because of personal and public safety issues. Hopefully also the developers won’t insist that users who die in the virtual world also die in the real world like in Sword Art Online!!!?!
