Facebook is working on a holodeck

In case you’ve missed it, Facebook just announced the first generation of the holodeck, which we all know from Star Trek.

You know, the room which transforms into whatever your heart desires at the push of a button.

Crazy right? Not really…

The first generation of the technology is fairly simple. All you will need is the same news feed you are currently using to look at cat pictures.

And this is what it will look like:

Not impressed?

I can understand your frustration.

I promised you a holodeck and all you get is a 360-view of some ship port.

Now, what if I told you that Facebook owns the leading company in virtual reality research. This company has spent years developing VR technology and the tech director is one of the original developers of the beloved game Doom.

This same company has already put out their first product. Look how much this woman is enjoying it ;)

Now just imagine that they put the research and technology of this company to good use and actually put out a holodeck product like the one we see on Star Trek.

It’s just a matter of time…

Let’s just hope they don’t fill up with ads ☺
