I think virtual reality porn you speak of is not far off. There are already very realistic love dolls out there now. There are video's of the love dolls being placed at a bar. And men actually attempt to hit on them. The don't realize it's a doll until they touch it. I think the next leap forward is making them move.
If anyone doesn't know this, there is an actual law that states that every two years computing capacity on a chip doubles. That has held true since the early 80's.
The problem is always the same cost vs application. New technology is expensive and the hardware and software support is often just as expensive, flawed, and isn't designed well.
So often times we hear about this new amazing technology. That promised to revolutionize things. Well that technology is however it it takes time to develop, master, and find the full potential before it become widespread.
Electronic Data Interchange was a pipe dream 15 years ago. Now EDI allows companies to order products real time instantly. Toyoda EDI is so complex that it actually orders parts as they are installed into cars. So toyoda gets the exact amount of parts they need without having to store large amounts of parts in a warehouse.
Porn has always been behind the curve even though porn sales put hollywood and pro sports sales combined, to shame. Why would they change a model that is so lucrative. Until virtual porn can be as easily hidden as hitting the minimize button on browser it will be a niche just like those realistic love dolls.
It will be more interesting to see what happens as the digital age sweeps the world and governments can't contain the free flow of information anymore. I wonder what the political climate will look like. I think that the biggest issues will be protecting privacy and mantaining the internet as a free and unfiltered web of knowledge.
