What technology do you think will have a huge breakthrough soon? I think driverless cars will finally reach a point where they will soon be deployed to consumers.
ISIS turning hijacked Amazon drones into flying remote suicide bombers.
Welcome to the future!
I wish I hadn't reverse image searched that.

I think the problem with that is that they're still probably not going to catch widely for a while because of the "IS THE CAR ALLOWED TO KILL YOU TO SAVE SOMEONE IT MIGHT HIT??!!!" crowd.
VR seems like a definite. Even if the consumer version of the Rift is somehow a total shit-show (which I doubt, but you never know) it seems like there are enough companies getting into it that at least one of them will get it right within a year or two.
Deny it all you want, but there's going to be rampant VR infidelity. You would understand if you've seen VR porn, which is still amazing in its early stages. You think it's crazy that people died playing WoW? Wait until people genuinely do not want to go back to real life because virtual life is better.
Forget infidelity. This is going to be the undoer of feminism.
>BLAH BLAH BLAH BITCH BITCH BITCH NO SEX FOR YOU UNLESS YOU DO X Y Z
>K. Have you seen my Oculus anywhere?
Without the monopoly on interactive pussy, feminist women basically have nothing to offer. They don't cook or clean and they can't be trusted not to divorce you on a whim so they're not marriage material.
Maybe obsolete was a strong word, but it's going to lead to a situation like is currently happening in Japan. There are fewer relationships and the birth rate is declining. There will obviously be some people that prefer real women, but VR women can do things that real women can't.
driverless cars are going to the bane of all self respecting driver's existance.
The filthy casuals will buy them en mass and people who want to actually use a steering wheel will end up getting shafted up the ass as time goes on.
Not that anon but I think purely in terms of short-term sexual gratification or whatever you wanna call it, VR totally could over time, especially once motion control and physical feedback tech become good/accurate enough.
I think THE moment though is once graphical technology gets good enough that you could make custom waifus that look realistic (or well animated if they're just 2D) with easy customization and fetish tailoring and all that without having to be an artist or programmer.
The second I'm able to log onto my PC with a headset and whatever other gear and enter a world where I have god powers and can create a custom harem and all that shit is when I'm found three weeks later rotting away dead in my chair.
The problem (which has already started to come up after the VR porn stuff at CES) is the asinine argument that the VR porn women can't offer consent or have any control over their situation whatsoever, so it's bad and much like shooters making people into mass murderers it's going to turn VR porn users into rapists and misogynists.
It's easy enough to just ignore because it's stupid as fuck, but all it'll take is one asshat who put on an Oculus once to go and commit a rape and then it's all "Oh well we need to police these or get rid of them to save the children!"
>bf sends me post he made (I'm not a grill)
>same BS you're talking about, VR will make women "obsolete" etc
Creeps me the fuck out that he thinks stuff like that desu
that would work as well as trying to ban graphics card because video games can be used to train people into flying airplanes or shooting or what have you. it will never fly.
i mean, maybe on a cuck country like the us there is some chance for that debate to happen but
>being american :^)
>(I'm not a grill)
Kinda gay to be quite honest family
hopefully something that induces lucid dreams, even if I have to invent it myself
Driverless cars is not far away at all. It's a economically feasible technology as far as I am concerned (it's mainly a matter of sensors + processing power + algorithms, all of which are cheap or getting cheaper rapidly). The technology is almost mature. Modern cars already incorporate some basic autonomous behaviour (adaptive cruise control). I'm not sure it would be a huge breakthrough, it's more of a evolution of technology that got us to this point. Not some clever guy that figured some complex shit out. Lawmakers could be an issue though..
How is the transition from smart phones to VR gonna be anything else but a change of interface?
50% of marriages end in divorce and a not insignificant part of the other 50% is a group of people that hate each other and don't get divorced for various other reasons. If you think most people are currently happy in their relationships you're living in a fantasy land.
People only care about social approval when they're around other people. VR distances them from that, and they can instead interact with Vietnamese prostitutes that are being paid to make you feel happy.
OP, hopefully low orbit/atmospheric broadband internet access. There are about a dozen companies experimenting with it now. The ability to have a reasonably fast internet connection anywhere on the planet would be amazing. Ok, it would drastically increase shitposting as the entire third world accessed the net from feature phones but it'd be nice to have a house out in the country or in the mountains and not have to suffer with shitty geosynchronous based service with insane costs.
They'll end up being banned from most roads, relegated to using tracks set aside from them much like horse trails are now.
>not insignificant part of the other 50% is a group of people that hate each other and don't get divorced for various other reasons
You expect to hand in your final paper without any citations?
You should already know what the divorce statistics for your country are unless you live under a rock. Common knowledge doesn't need to be cited, and if you're ignorant enough that you have seen the 50% figure, you can go verify its accuracy of your own accord.
Our very own Makis to cuddle with....
It's like a dream come true
Crypton's artwork is ptetty innocent I guess, so there was a short timeframe where she wasn't. The idea of a character/voice that anyone can use however he or she wants is pretty slutty to begin with tho.
I think it'll be introduced slowly. I don't think you have to worry about it for a long while.
I'm honestly excited about it because it means I can go home drunk without having to sober up or take an Uber.
I'm honestly fine with normies getting self-driving cars, since that way there will be less texting soccermoms out to kill you in their SUVs.
I'm just worried that manually-driven cars will either get outlawed completely or made prohibitively expensive by insurance companies.

That argument is the exact same as women in porn who you're supposedly raping because you're jerking off to them. Pretty sure that was in the job description that people everywhere are going to be fapping to you.
>one asshat who put on an Oculus once to go and commit a rape
Reminds me of how the instant I heard of those two girls killing their friend for slender, how I immiediately said that a bunch of idiots are going to blame video games and not mental illness. Honestly. I hate the "for the children" argument. Rapists gonna rape, killers gonna kill, terrorists gonna terror etc.
I really hope this happens. It'll cull a whole bunch of betas from even attempting to find a girlfriend, so they most likely won't ever reproduce. I'd spoiler, but I can't on /g/, it'll also leave more women for those on the cusp of beta, if they can ever get their heads out of their asses for once.
I say let the NEETs be NEETs and jerk off to their VR waifus. I doubt I'll fall into the trap and everyone will be happier because of it.
Self-driving cars aren't close at all. They can't handle rain or snow AT ALL. Nor can they handle edge cases. Google just drives them around in perfect Californian conditions and has the driver take over when any difficult scenario arises. This hasn't changed in like three years.
VR is useless for anything except driving/piloting games. Right now only two senses are handled: vision and hearing. VR will only be a replacement for reality when you can actually FEEL things: the wind in your face, the grass between your toes, the water on your body, the enemy's face before your fist, the pussy on your cock. There is no technology even remotely on the horizon capable of solving this problem. You'll probably need to plug something directly into the back of your neck. A neural interface. At least 30 years out.
I suppose the most interesting stuff we'll see in the next five years are some nifty stuff with deep learning (with all your private data). Nothing game changing though. That's about it.
Are any of these not a complete scan?
Seems like something we frankly don't know enough about to even come close to achieving desired results consistently.
I'd imagine there's a lot of 'power of suggestion' placebo effect that comes with dropping money on these.
there was one some dude from reddit kickstarted
dunno if it works, but i thought it was pretty neat
VR, won't be long until I can cuddle with my favourite LL.
You do realize that driverless cars will spell the beginning of the end for freedom of movement right?
They become commercially available
Driverless car crashes become rampant
Government implements a type of centralized service which all driverless cars must connect to so they can be synchronized with other cars in real time. Using this service becomes mandatory.
Government can either shut down your car remotely or bar your access to that service if you drive where the government doesn't want you to go.
Enjoy your Agenda 21 future, goyim.

machine intelligences for home appliances. Ovens, TV colour settings, vacuum cleaners, coffee machines, litter boxes, door locks, safes, mugs, knife sharpeners, onaholes, light switches, dragon dildos, toilets, showers, humidifiers, and so on. They'll all have some faggot NSA botnet that they'll be able to trick consumers into getting with muh cloud and muh smart x y z.
