Hey, Zaine...your Holodeck is almost ready!

This 360-degree ultra-high-definition military simulator allows you to drive a Humvee and fire real weapons with absolute precision, including machine guns and rocket launchers, anywhere you want. The 10-projector system achieves a perfectly seamless panorama thanks to Mersive's Sol system; a calibration, warping and sub-pixel image blending technology that may jump from military sims to your living room in the near future. Sol can get any number of projectors and project a single huge image over a surface of any shape and size. We talked with Mersive about how it works and how this may work for game enthusiasts.

Wow, thanks App! But seriously, the last thing I'm going to be doing in my Holodeck is driving a truck. Man, I want to program it so that I'm more powerful than god!! (Okay, well that's one program; I have over 820 and counting.) As I say every time: once I go in, I ain't coming out.

So if you go in a holodeck, can you pretend like you're being productive? That is, could I holodeck that I've just coded the best program in the world and everyone loves it and all that? Hmm... What if it was a very rudimentary holograph that didn't let you program it so that you were more powerful than God, but it let you holodeck that you have programmed it to do that. So in your holodeck you have programmed it to do all your 820 things, but in reality you haven't done that because it's impossible. Like a dream in which you're dreaming.

 ;D :P :D

Yeah, I'm using holodeck as a verb. :tellme:

"Mister Riker, have you seen Mister Crusher?"

"Yes Captain, I believe he is in the holodeck, ah, driving a truck."

"I see.  Is that a euphemism for anything, Mister Riker?"

"Yes sir, I believe it is."

Dreaming, driving, trucking, tapping, smoting, whatever. I'll take any good alternate reality at this point!  :P
