Ubiquitous augmented reality and photorealistic realtime simulations are only a few decades away, with fully immersive VR likely coming along shortly after, if not alongside these disruptive technologies which will revolutionize humanity's interfacing with reality itself. You won't search Google, Google will search for you. You won't carry devices; computers will be invisibly embedded everywhere. The world will shrink to the point where it fits in a room - your room, and we'll begin to move the globe around us, instead of moving around the globe. Experience the world - and beyond - without ever leaving your room. Further out, neural interface will allow us to jack into the Matrix for real, and ultimately, we will upload our minds to computers, becoming truly limitless. We won't be developing warp drives any time soon, but we will be warping reality to our will. Space is not the final frontier. This is the most exciting time in human history, for this is the century of the reality exodus.

Sure! I was actually planning to add that very same video, as I remembered seeing it on the forum earlier, but I fell asleep. I planned to just post three videos, then kept thinking of more and more to add lol. I will continue to update this list in the future, and will take recommendations.

Excellent compilation of videos! These are truly inspiring for us VR enthusiasts I especially love the Omni-Directional Treadmill concept and of course the Playstation 9 simulated reality sketch. Indeed there will be no need to travel to the far reaches of space when we can simply create our own universe, not to mention develop meaningful narratives for ourselves within that simulated universe.
The dark side of this being that simulated reality may not be the ultimate paradise, but the death of humanity.
I usually post in the Rift forum but I found this more general VR/AR related: I couldn't directly post here, since the video is in a weird format, but its an interactive 360 degree moving from the top of an F1 car. WOW! Imagine that with high FOV and head tracking?! http://www.f1fanatic.co.uk/2012/10/31/i ... ll-action/

That's one of the reasons why I configure the Flash plugin as "click to play" by default in the Chrome settings. That and the fact that I don't like seeing things moving on my screen without me consenting to it. Surfing the web has been a lot more enjoyable this way for me.
