Star Trek-like holodeck may be closer to reality than you thinkPerhaps no other piece of fictional technology from the Star Trek universe — with the exception of the iconic transporter that first “beamed up” characters from the original 1960s series starring William Shatner as Captain James T. Kirk — has inspired the imagination of fans and the general public quite like the holodeck.While the technology needed to create a virtual reality chamber once seemed light years away, many technology companies are already working on early prototype designs for holodeck-style chambers, and technologists now believe machines worthy of bearing the name “holodeck” could be as little as 10 to 15 years away from realization.
