Will Virtual Reality Like In Sword Art Online Ever Be Possible?

Asuna Yuuki Sao

Sword Art Online is an Anime show way ahead of its time. It’s hard to say whether the creators were intentionally predicting the future, but they did a pretty good job of it.

Even if unintentionally.

Because just as there’s Virtual reality in Sword Art Online, over 2 years later (2017) it’s now becoming a real thing.

So to answer the question – Will Virtual Reality Like In Sword Art Online Ever Be Possible?

The answer is a YES without a doubt.

This year it’s been announced that Sword Art Online will be getting an official virtual reality experience.

But unfortunately for anybody outside of Japan and Korea, we won’t be able to experience it. It’s only exclusively happening in Japan and Korea for now.

It’s said it’ll be released this year in July, though that can’t be confirmed.

In general there are already Virtual Reality headsets (that have nothing to do with SAO), that let you travel worlds and jump around. Similar to what happens in the Anime of Sword Art Online.

But I predict Virtual reality itself won’t become mainstream until the next 10-15 years at the least.

Right now hardly anybody is taking virtual reality seriously. And the rest of us don’t care enough to start getting into it.

But it will happen.

And when it does?

It’ll be even more or just as popular as smartphones and Tablet PC’S are today in 2017.

It’s just a matter of time before it happens. 😉

What are your thoughts on virtual reality?

Do you think it will ever be as fun and creative as Sword Art Online?

And if so, when do you think it will happen? Are you looking forward to it?

    A screen strapped on your face and little pistons on a suit that touch your skin are hardly a SAO like experience. The anime shows an headset that without drilling your cranium and brain is able to send signals directly to the right parts of the brain to simulate a full reality inside your head. Meanwhile we don’t even know how consciousness works and how to simulate sight in blind people starting from parts of the eye that work, not even the brain itself.
