  • I don't think in the next decade. There could be quasi-functional prototypes, but nothing mass-produced on the scale of Westworld.
  • @melanielust, I agree that while we will see great prototypes, the scale of WestWorld is atleast 50 years away.

    LOL, I think people have been predicting Westworld tech to become mainstream since it came out in 1973.
  • I agree with @cydharta .
  • @CYDdharta, what seemed like far fetched future in 1973 is within reach in 2020.  The pace of technology advancement has been incredibly and accelerating.
