    What do you think? right around the corner or a ways off? VR is great but if you can't get your **** kicked on it then its not quite holodeck material.

    Well I don't know a particular company working in a tech exactly like that, but I invite you to check this thread with an article about a 360 training room (you don't wear a Head Mounted Display HMD to be in VR).

    Here the link to the article: http://forums.vrheads.com/vr-news-di...ntos-nyt-8490/

    But having the ability to interact physically with the surrounding as in Star Trek may be some years ahead with the correct Augmented Reality.

    Considering that Holodecks were developed with influences from non-human societies. I would say a very very long time, Starfleet started to implement Holodecks mid 2300's , and think about the amount of incidents that took place in the Holodeck, I'm not too sure I would want one.

    Very true (but you know it would be a blast)..... Or as my mother once said "it's all fun and games until someone gets hurt"

    I personally think that VR implants with direct neural access are required for an actual holodeck.

    I actually like this idea... Yea, I get it, it's kinda scary, but think of the possibilities!

    Cyborgs FTW! :-) (Only kinda joking)

    We'll get the holodeck immediately after we finally get flying cars.

    All hail our cybernetic overlords!

    Now seriously, I would probably need to control myself very hard not to be an early adopter of this tech

    The idea of a holodeck came from Star Trek, so it isn't really a new idea to think about. Technology nowadays advances quite fast, so I can see this being a thing with VR... maybe another 5 years or so due to VR being in a very alpha state at the moment.

    Hard light holograms have to be at least 100 years in the future. It really depends on if we keep pace with Moore's law and how soon true independent A.I. is developed.

    not necessary a true AI, more a seamless merge with reality is required, i would say...
