Pretty cool.

Looks to be a huge first step in what we'll see in the future. This could make the movie Surrogates come true to an extent, or some of those Tom Clancy books NetForce.
[spoiler]NetForce has some scenes in it where internet porn included special touch things that had feedback for both partners. Seems pretty similar![/spoiler]

Awesome.

I'm one step closer to being able to punch someone over the internet.

I can't believe that you apes both have taken such a wondrous technology back up to the trees...

Just think of the major trouble that stops you from ever visiting another planet. Getting yourself there!

You all squish and fragile and don't really like space and Martian or Luna atmosphere. This represents part of the technology to make an avatar of yourself on these inhospitable places.

This what it would be like to walk on the moon in VR..

Anyhow, I digress. Pretty cool.

Wow, you mean we could actually experience walking across a barren rocky wasteland!? _

Might i add that this is already been invented in a sense.

Reminds me of an old sci-fi story I read where a robot (kinda similar in the sense of humans not squishy in these things) practically forces the surrender of an entire alien race because it's a super strong and practically invulnerable being, the aliens thought everyone was like that and waved the white flag at that point.

Gen, you know it will be weaponized in some way if it works. That's practically the standard nature of humans by now.

True. But I've come to the conclusion that that is a facet of human civilisation and society and something that we may take to the stars if we survive ourselves.

We aren't predators so we don't kill for need, we are herbivores that kill for defense. In a sense we are wrong in that we kill to keep other scavengers away from what we deem ours, and what we deem ours is legion.

There is no necessity only greed to our lust for better and more destructive technologies, perhaps it is this greed that makes an intelligent species, if so then the fact that we have it is good. Yet the sample of one is a bad sample to judge anything from...

The 2.6-second feedback delay may be just a little problematic.
