We could build the Holodeck tomorrow

I got kind of excited when I suddenly realized how close we are to realizing a rudimentary version of Star Trek's Holodeck, so I duplicated our latest post on Daynuv below.

Though some of these technologies are in the early stages of development none of them are in the realm of science fiction. Now all we need to do is put them together -

    We’re that near already? Never would have thought. Of course, there is still so much to do, but I still would be glad only to walk through a world without touching and feeling it. I don’t think they will get that one in the next years. But let them put it together first and than I can complain. 😉
