Kilravok Posted January 16, 2015 Report Share Posted January 16, 2015 Moderation note: This post was split from How Long Until We Could Make A Real Sword Art Online (sao) Nerve Gear Type Device, because that long thread is being broken up into threads by subject to make them shorter and more readable. This thread is for discussion of concerns about the design of computer programs for more immersive virtual reality, rather than “FullDive” immersive VR interface devices DHendry, I understand your concerns and for most part they are valid, but I believe that medical panels would hold the authority and integrity to reject any unsafe devices (unless maybe if a panel member is also shareholder or director in one of the developing companies...GitS SAC:Laughingman anybody?). Of course, there will be a risk there and the waste of resource is horrendous, but the need to be better and faster than others has throughout history proven to be the strongest motivator of mankind. Passion and goodwill only gets the stone rolling, but you need urgency to keep the momentum. Alos, nothing wrong with sone of the features you mentioned. FaceAche and Twitt won't be needed since the system would come with it's own native social networking environment which, by the very nature of FDVR, would completely outclass traditional social networks and chat programs; MP3 and 4 implimentation would not be a bad thing, considering that it is the preferable format even today for the immersive ingame sound tracks and video cut scenes; micro transactions and paypal (or similar) would not only be acceptable but also, according to GGO, actual SAO canon; internal adds would have to be immersive, aka. billboards on the wayside of racing games, leaflets on cork boards in roleplay towns, etc....there can be T&C rules banning pop-up adverts; Java itself ios not evil, how it is used is, but that can be pre-empted with T&C rules. I aggree though, using Java would be detrement to the security and stability of the system. If of course we could get a global single group, with respectively up-scaled funding and resources, all under one roof to remain fully motivated, without bringing issues like fame, money and ego into the game, from start to end, that would be great. My sociology teacher however taught me to never loose faith the in the arrogance, greed and stupidity of the human race. I hope he was wrong.
