    This is about as close to the holodeck from Star Trek: TNG as we are going to get.

    I had actually been imagining something like this happening for a while. Ever since they did that 2Pac hologram at a Snoop Dogg concert I had wondered how long it would take for them to take that technology and adapt it to programmable video games. It looks like someone else out there had the same imagination as me. Now all they have to do is make those holograms interactive with the player hitting them and we will have virtual reality without goggles!

    I'm a collector, but only to a certain extent.
    Not as extreme as Rickstilwell though.[/quote]
