IBM is making a real-life Sword Art Online concept without the real-life killing, and thanks to Inside, 4Gamer, and Nagare, we got some photos of people testing the virtual reality experience.
Sword Art Online is an anime and light-novel series written by Reki Kawahara, and it's set in the year 2022, when thousands of players who have logged into a Virtual Reality Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game (VRMMORPG) called Sword Art Online find out that they can't log out.
While IBM's recreation isn't a standalone game, it lets players see what IBM's computer power can do in a virtual environment. It's also a chance for the company to show off its SoftLayer cloud service and its cognitive systems.
Check out the photos below:
