Silly vegetable, you're forgetting full-on virtual reality as
depicted way back in the early 80s in Gibson's novels, long
before a real web actually existed, including feedback for all the senses.
Gamers already have tactile feedback, which will easily spread more to the
web, and then there is teledildonics, which has been around in rudimentary
form many years.  I don't know if we're in for a new golden age, but we
are certainly in for a bloody, itchy, smelly, squishy one.
