It isn't far enough removed from "cave" and current technology for me to see why it wouldn't work. The key issue is that it would be single player. Even going for two players would require some fancy multiplexing. Hmmmm, actually... With a bright enough light source, there IS a way that I can think of making it two player... KEWL!

When the Star Trek holodeck finally becomes a reality i'd suspect rampant holodeck addiction will occur.
Why would any one leave a virtual world where you could live any lifestyle you chose with any one you chose to live it with.?
Perhaps going to work to pay for it might be an inconvenience..

I already know I will be addicted. I have a full basement that I never use and is 2,000 square feet. I will set up my hollow deck there, find a game I like set it in the boring mode so there never is a ending and live my life in there using the "easy button" and dating the guy I always wanted to date. I will only leave when I have to.

Like Barkley in Star Trek TNG I have tried to say "end program" "open doors" nothing happens!

And this is not a program I would want to live in as people I know die and the guy I liked is dating a girl after he told me he is gay and Pueblo is not one of the largest cities in the nation. If I did pick this program I don't know what the hell I was thinking.

1. The language used by the Creator of the program is not English.

2. If people did not "die" or have built-in constraints in their choices it would not be a viable program.

3. I'm not telling.

Hey! Now either your joking with me (and as usual I did not get it) or you did not get my joke about star trek and the "end program". I have said it but I did not expect it to work.
