A “holodeck” is an enclosed room in which objects and people are simulated by a combination of transported matter, replicated matter, tractor beams, and shaped force fields onto which holographic images are projected.  Most holodeck programs shown in Star Trek episodes run in first person “subjective mode”, in which the user actively interacts with the program and its characters. The user may also employ third-person “objective mode”, in which he or she is “apart” from the actual running of the program and does not interact with it (all of the program’s characters will ignore the user as if he or she was not there.  (READ MORE about “Holodeck”)

Virtual reality (VR) or also called Immersive Multimedia is a computer-simulated environment that can simulate physical presence in places in the real world or imagined worlds.  (READ MORE about “Virtual Reality”)

Someday the “Holodeck” from Star Trek may become a reality simulation “toy” on Earth. Microsoft and other tech companies are already working on creating virtual reality devices for use in the home. The idea of “virtual reality” has been a part of science fiction and film since the 1930s : “Pygmalion’s Spectacles” by Stanley G. Weinbaum describes a goggle-based virtual reality system with holographic recording of fictional experiences including smell and touch.

Theoretically, since our universe is fundamentally composed of “thought energy” it is conceivable that we are already living inside a holographic  universe, driven by computer technology developed by “aliens” over a period of billions of years.  On Earth, we have had electricity for only about 100 years, and computers for only a few decades.  What technology might be possible millions of years from now?  Socially and technologically the human race are virtual barbarians.  Yet, anything we can imagine can become a reality.

If you could choose any “virtual reality program” from a Holodeck menu, which would you choose?
