The first episode also kept Wesley wet after exiting the holodeck.

Yeah, the Pilot definitely had some flaws

I remember in the 90s there was always big discussions about it. Nintendo's Virtual Boy was a flop, but it wasn't real VR to begin with. I'm talking about the technology similar to what we saw in Star Trek: The Next Generation and Deep Space 9. Now it is never brought up.

Think we will ever see Virtual Reality in our lifetimes?


No. That VR involves all 5 major senses. Plus, you'd be like super tired with the jumping involved in only one Mario level. Let's not forget I can't physically pull off pretty much anything game characters can. Buttons let me pull off Lighting Kicks with Chun-Li, but my legs cannot actually do that.

What I DO want, though, is high-definition VR headsets to watch games instead of a TV. They wrap around your head so you see a full human field of vision of a game world instead of a "window into it" like you do with a TV. I mean, just imagine a regular FPS game: The analog sticks would still control your movement and gun aim, but now you can look anywhere you want... including regular ol' down the ironsights.

Didn't the first TNG episode have Riker walking around a forest searching for Data?
He must have walked a distance much bigger than the room itself.

Force fields keep them slightly suspended above the floor, I think. They also help create the illusion of standing and walking on solid ground. In the end, what it all amounts to is television space magic that will probably never be possible.

I bet that the porn industry will release the first holodecks.


Well, porn led to the invention of the digital camera and the Internet among other things, so I'd say that's highly likely.

A team is already working on something similar called 'Holodeck Project' using 4 Kinects and a pair of Oculus Rift goggles. Check it out sometime.

They have been talking about this waaay before the 90's.
Have no idea. Tech is hard to predict.

I got to experience Virtual Reality like 20 or so years ago at Epcot Center. I was randomly selected from all the park guests that day.. like me and 3 or 4 others. Keep in mind this was 20+ years ago, and it was crazy impressive.

I was Mickey, and I knew this because when I Iooked down at myself or put my arms out or what have you I saw Mickey's arms, legs, stomach, etc.. Also I found a mirror to look in.

Also, I was in Agrabha (sp?) from Aladdin. It was so nuts man. I had these huge ass harnesses all over my body (arms/hands, head, various other locations) and the head piece was gigantic, but they had it harnessed to the ceiling, I guess so I didn't have to support it. There was tons of cabling connected to all this junk too.

Also, I was on another piece that acted as the magic carpet. I was flying all over town. So insane. I could roll my eyes side to side and up and down and never once did I see an edge of a screen. It really felt and looked like I was a freakin' cartoon in a town. Also, they blasted wind and things at me, so if I sped up wind came rushing past me faster, when I slowed down, the wind did. They even had like some rudimentary smells coming my way as I flew over the market place. And of course the audio was like directly in my ear. I could not hear a damn thing outside of my own little world.

I know I got to play around in that world for a good chunk of time, and when they finally took the head piece off, apparently the room I was in, had rotated around, or the wall came down or something, because now there was a glass wall and like hundreds of people in a stadium type seating arrangement that had apparently started watching me and the other folks take part in this. There were all these monitors that showed a little piece of what we were seeing to the audience, as they watched our motions and reactions.

I dunno man, it was insane and so awesome, and to this day I have never forgot that experience.

I think at some point they made this same concept into a super dumbed down version that all guests could "ride" called Aladdin's Magic Carpet Ride.

Kuebel if you were impressed by that then you are going to love Oculus Rift and Project Holodeck.
