How close are we to a similar thing to ready player one?

Honored Guest
I dont know anything abput modern virtual reality, but is there something near that? Or are we more headed into the augmented reality for now? I saw a couple of vids of people transforming the exterior, but is it too far away in time to be inserted matrix style? Graphics on modern games are stupidly realistic, not perfect, but man they work. So a skyrim kind of game could be feasible? With sensitivity and stuff? I think that is much more difficult to achieve.
I know i may spund like an idiot, but i'm 41. I have played games my whole life, and viewing how deepfakes and AI in general is making technology improve exponentially, meta existing, just needing a graphical overhaul, i would love to think thwt i could be young again at 75, fighting dragons and stuff like that.
I hope i can live to see that day.

If you mean a fully immersive experience, indistinguishable from reality, we are quite some way off from that. VR is still very much in its infant stage.

If we mean how far are we from living in a dystopian hellscape where peope do not interact in person and tech billionaires decide what we believe, probably closer than we would like.

I've no doubt that if you spend enough and have a large enough space you can have incredible VR experiences and when you spend regular, long sessions in there you can definitely feel presence.

We need more peripherals (which are widely adopted) to get to Ready Player One.
