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?

    When is it releasing in Japan??

    • Theo J Ellis says:

      I can’t say. I’d give it a couple of years before it becomes useful and more relevant.

I can’t tell you how much I love anime! I think it’s amazing! Please try hurrying up on the virtual reality please.! Please and Thanks.!

    I truly do hope it becomes reality, and if it did im sure it will be extremely popular, a chance for people to escape reality for a while. The only problem would most likely be… the price. Even if it was possibly to make a game such as SAO, (Sword Art Online) it most likely will not be cheap, at all. ‘Ordinary’ people such as myself most likely wont have a very big chance of getting the chance to try something like this out, especially not withing the first year of its release.. sad but what can one do.

  6. Emilee Jaskowiak says:

    Will this be released for all over the world to try out and I hope we don’t get locked in into it for 2 years (like the amine did) but I am excited about this cool game.

  7. Tristan says:

    If we can get ordinal scale or Sao in the next 10 yrs alteast I will be the happiest person alive. Ive always wanted to play games like those

    We would have to be able to make Ready Player One a reality first before we could tap into that level of full immersive-ness, and with the technology we have today, it honestly wouldn’t be too hard. They already have VR suits, all we need 360• free range treadmill with body hookups that can be synchronized with the headset and body suit. It may not be SAO level of “full-five”, but I’d still be happy with a Ready Player One set-up for sure!

    Man kind technology is so useless and slow we cant even have fi\ull dive vr yet but its america

  10. Nice Bait says:

    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.

  11. I love SAO says:

    If there’s ever going to be a real sao or mmolike in the movie thing please let it happen soon it will be soooooo cool to have a wonderful world that you can do everything possible so please I’ll be waiting ^_^

  12. Rake says:

    It will happen. It surely will. By 2025 to 2030. It will…

    • Theo J Ellis says:

      I agree with that time-frame. Time will tell!
