    I'm a huge fan of Ready Player One. Here's our podcast episode on Ready Player One:


    If you want to know how this marvel works, just watch the next video... it explains Everything you want to know. I chose to break this up into two videos because it was so cool.

    I asked HaptX for a blurb to explain their company. This is what they came up with:

    HaptX is a multidisciplinary team of engineers based in San Luis Obispo, CA and Seattle, WA that builds advanced haptic technology. Their first product, HaptX Gloves, brings touch feedback to VR with unprecedented realism, enabling a new category of industrial training simulations. Founded by Jake Rubin and Dr. Bob Crockett in 2012, HaptX won’t stop until you can’t tell what’s real from what’s virtual. Learn more at haptx.com.

    If you're interested in working for them, here's a link:

              My only issue is that it doesn't look like it's being developed for gaming - it's focusing mostly on VR training for engineers and things like that. Which is totally fine, but that also means that this technology may take a little longer to come to home VR systems.

                                    "VR's not gonna catch on." Clearly, you're either not a gamer or you don't understand gamers.

                                        VR will not become main stream until they can reduce the size and weight of the devices considerably and by then Nerolink may have figured out how to use BIM to transmit directly to the brain and you won't need any external device except maybe storage. No one is going to ware 100lbs of gear and be hooked to 30 different wires with a big control box and power supply for each piece of hardware.

                                                Do you agree that the Ready Player One movie left a lot to be desired? The movie was good (and came out on my birthday, so that's pretty cool), but there were many elements in the book that I think would have improved the movie a lot.

That's only 30 years, by then I'm sure they'll have actual glove versions of this, but transporting the brain is far beyond anything we can do now, neither you or I are gonna be around for that. It'd be much more cost effective and safe to just make a 360 degree treadmill and full body suit similar to Ready Player One, putting people in a sort of lucid dream state would be highly controversial and would require years of testing (potentially decades) before it'd be allowed to be made into a consumer product.
