Moore's Law and Virtual Reality - The Octopus Butler Robot

I love Jaron Lanier's Jaron's World in Discover magazine. The May 2007 issue has a great piece on Moore's Law and Virtual Reality (VR). It it Lanier muses about the hollistic interface we strive for between us humans and "computers." He also talks about "haptics" - something I've mentioned in this blog before. Although Second Life has caught a lot of attention these days, the Wii is also making a big splash in the world of VR. Lanier admits that VR and a true hollistic interface will have to wait for Moore's Law "to catch up." I wonder how long a wait?

You can read more of Jaron's stuff at his website.
