depending on what we want to consider "hardware", I'd say plenty
also "perfect" is quite subjective: for example, one could argue that if a certain thing already does exactly what's supposed to do...well it's perfect . On the other hand, one could dive into the philosophical aspect of this argument by stating that "perfect" would be only something that cannot be further improved. Someone else would then join up the discussion, stating that it would be impossible to understand when such stage would be reached, because that would mean we -humans- would've become gods (or God himself) and therefore making that assumption completely arbitrary: I can go on for decades, but I am already yawning
Because that's just one tiny component in a actual AR/VR. Recreating the sensation of life is not something that can be perfected since that would make the AR/VR the actual reality and the previous one a poor simulation. You can't perfect an alternate world beyond what you otherwise perceive without switching them around in the process.
I believe your point of view is unnecessarily restricted to a physical concept, while I think we will soon get rid of "hardware" and simply be directly connected to software, actually living it within our conscience.
