Why would a company sell a product capable of completely fucking you up when they have no clue how the underlying tech works? Did nobody call them out on this?
I just find it hard to believe that nobody reverse engineered the glasses and discovered its flaws, considering that glasses tech is radically different from all the other technology they seem to have.

It's even worse for tech. For a long time, people had no idea how small scale electronics worked, they probably only pretend to do so now. Programmers who think they know what they're doing, are mostly lying to themselves. And don't even start on what people call AI.
>Programming is just math.
Not even close. If you think lambda calculus forms any kind of real model for programming, you're sorely deluded. If only for the fact that everyone fudges things at the requirements stage.
Because believe it or not you actually need a craftsman there to get anything done. You can't just exclude all of the opening conditions, that's like setting up contradictory axioms. Even if I could convince you that code wasn't even close to mathematics, the fact remains that programming entails a lot more than coding.
Anon, I will not argue with you about electronics because that's way out of my area of expertise, nor am I going to assume I know more than you about AI, after all "machine learning" and deduction was but a small part of my cs masters degree and I did not study it deep enough; but anon, don't explain to full time code monkey wageslave what programming is.
This is actually explained by the show thematically
You see, when cyberspace was created, it actually took the place of the supernatural plane, giving it form.
This is never explicitly stated, but present in the atmosphere, and is the only logical interpretation for some of the events that transpire.
such as Densuke's ghost, or the real cats feeling the lresence of/hanging out with cybercats
Dennou Coil is fucking perfect Sci-fi, and a highly religious experience. (They use the Toori as a safe space)
>would a company sell a product capable of completely fucking you up when they have no clue how the underlying tech works
That is a pretty good description of every pharmaceutical company ever.
It was considered 'license to print money' while it lasted, you know.
/a/, where your trust in the modern and progressive is dispelled.
On a separate note, Dennou Coil had many merits, but the one I value most highly was this beautiful ballad from Ikeda Ayako:
>Why would a company sell a product capable of completely fucking you up when they have no clue how the underlying tech works
This is exactly what companies do when they sell antidepressants and other similar drugs, yet nobody gives a fuck because they work (usually). It may not be as exciting as magic technology glasses, but it's pretty much the same thing since we only have vague ideas about why these drugs might do what they do, maybe.
True, using technology to tell a story that human is what all sci-fi should strive to do. Most sci-fi works just get too caught up in worldbuilding instead of sending a strong message.
