Oh my! I’ve been fascinated by virtual reality since seeing demos in the early days. It was crude. Very crude. Not enough computer space for any but the most basic block images. I had to wear a heavy helmet and stand in one spot. But still. I could fly!!
Now a step closer to a real Star Trek holodeck is happening! Still crude by Next Generation standards, but a step that would have been unbelievable a few years ago!
“The closest thing to Star Trek’s ‘Holodeck’ – a large scale tracking lab with VR headsets used to develop everything from redirected walking to quadcopter control algorithms.”
I’m not even sure what all those words mean, but check it out! Thanks to Sara for alerting me to this YouTube vid: http://youtu.be/7ZPs7knvs7M
