    Shouldn't be long before Nvidia, ATI, ect. start offering a wireless version to the public. Brain surgery anyone? This stuff is getting way to weird. Imagine being thrown into the horror house that is Doom 3. Total immersion. Like a sick dream...shudder...what if you got stuck in there? Remember Captain Kirk's buddy the guy that used to captain the Enterprise before Kirk? Those ****-head guys had him trapped in a virtual reality world. I am glad I can just unplug and walk away.
