Arthur C. Clarke was wrong

This is the future that you get when you advance single technology in isolation from everything else. In this case space technology.

To advance space technology so far to have capability to create worlds like in video, you need to advance computing technology. This advanced computing technology brings robotics and VR and AR on the level that enables new technologies that make a lot of stuff in this video obsolete. For example, there is no need for EVA if we can have remotely controlled robot. There is no need for laboratory and working space to be real at all, it can run in virtual reality or remotely. Building stuff can be done remotely by robots. Lesson learned, no technology can work in isolation from the big picture.

But this future that has this longing and romanticism of wild west and a sense of freedom.
