    Brilliant stuff!
    I had a conversation on vent a while ago about what is next for the internet tekki wise and i came up with something similar.
    I was thinking more along the lines of holograms with texture. One thing that has not been mentioned here is internet shopping, i think it will make a huge different if people are able to literally see and touch items they wish to purchase.
    I'd go one step further and take it to the point of being able to try on holographic clothes, shoes etc from home.
    Books were already mentioned (one of my great loves).


    Oh and also what INTP said... i can't wait for that either...magic!

I think our generation and below sees this overlap, but previous ones still think of gaming as child's play and not apart of the larger picture.
    Reminds me of this particular instance in the news from a while back:

    ScienceDaily (Sep. 18, 2011) — Gamers have solved the structure of a retrovirus enzyme whose configuration had stumped scientists for more than a decade. The gamers achieved their discovery by playing Foldit, an online game that allows players to collaborate and compete in predicting the structure of protein molecules.

    Yeah I played that game. Not to mention the ability to run SETI on PCs and dedicated gaming plateform (playstation 3 ..) and helping out researchers through cloud computing

    NO! SCIENCE!

    I think the difference between magic and science is generally lies in the explanatory gap.
    As clarke said
    Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
    .

    In terms of literature the difference probably lies in the fact that different types of storytellers and stories will lean toward classic fantasy and 'classic science fiction'. Traditional 'fantasy' settings allow the storyteller more liberty to focus on world building, character development etc while science fiction by focusing on things that traditionally are considered as 'precise and object oriented' give the writer less mental space for character dev etc.

    There's also the fact that science fiction is NT porn, who don't necessarily give a fuck about character dev. but I disgress

    Oh I could tell you how to make that one. I'd be expensive though

    Would have to win the lottery in order to make a holodeck.

    @CuriousFeeling
    Nah. You'd need a whole R&D team, specialists everywhere and a Manhattan project type of budget if u wanted to do it properly. You'd basically have to 'finish' the work done on already existing technologies. Develop a system that would allow the person to 'walk around' without the limits of a 'multidirectional threadmill' kind of thing. etc.
    It would be ideal if we could just directly plug the input into the central nervous system. 'd save quite a bit of money on hardware.

    ps: about your signature. Which banks? Ian (m.) Banks?

    Plug it into the central nervous system like in Avatar or The Matrix. But hopefully when a player gets injured, their bodies won't feel the pain though... that would be pretty bad.
