    Will it happen within our lifetime ( in 30-70 years)?

    By using Elon Musk's Neuralink (Neural Lace 2039???) ,NerveGear, exo-skeletons, positional monitoring maybe?

    And if we were to achieve this would anyone still want to live in the real world apart from people who are maintaining the system and certain religious groups?(or at least take breaks from full dive VR)

    And is VR a replacement for reality? As in will it stop people from physically travelling and going outside?

    It's interesting to think about how VR will go if it takes off. I sat watching Ready Player One a while back and sat there thinking the world could go that way and it could feasibly happen in 25 years when the film is set (with less Spielberg cheese of course!). A lot of the tech is here already and it's quite scary when you think about it. Today you can buy haptic body suits (a work colleague has one he bought for 300 notes and says they are great), treadmills etc. and only a matter of time before controllers are replaced with haptic gloves. You can easily see us living in VR worlds as the tech improves over the next couple of decades.

    One day Larry Fishburne is going to meet me and I'll end up taking the blue pill just to stay in Subnautica and robo recall.....

    Lol.

    No to all of the questions, unless you're a sad little incel who likes the idea of spending their life in a VR space.

    Also, good luck taking a shit.

    There is no way I'm letting Elon Musk near my brain.

    User Decks is already one with cyberspace. One day all the phones in the world will ring at the same time and then you'll turn around to see one of the creatures from his drawings.

    I haven't played anything on there for a while to be honest. It's essentially a wanking helmet at the minute.

    When vibrating condoms are a thing, this will be a thing.

    This is primarily why, despite really wanting one, I am not buying second hand.

    People are already living in a "human zoo". Single men get labelled MGTOW (”Men Going Their Own Way”). Much like single-parent females. Hardly interested in humans nor the outdoors but instead save up for holidays abroad. Once they get over cabin fever they are in their own world. Given the alternative of having to support another human plus being trapped by unplanned offspring with debts incurred from borrowing way too much to finance it all and then considering it falling apart and giving away half your assets then life in VR can be a reality. No doubt many of you are there right now! I bet most of us did worry in apprehension what if we prefer VR to daily life? I thought this just as getting into fps was getting more real and made me still think I was a Soldier walking on dark footpaths or in my car treating it like I could handbrake it around corners. People will sure enough become zombies!

    I don't think anyone was expecting him to say that.
