Sony Gets Us That Much Closer to Star Trek's Holodeck

Hmm. It looks like Star Trek's Halodeck technology may be here sooner than we thought. Or at least a really cool new way to experience movies. It comes from Sony and highlights the brand's PlayStation Move controller.

The technology is described thusly, "In the past, projection mapping worked only from a single, static view point, and thus was very limited. By attaching the PlayStation Move to the camera, we can track projections to screens in real time, enhancing the effect of spatial deformation and false perspective on the projections and allowing viewers to look round (virtual) corners, bend walls, create a hole in the wall, or remove the walls altogether to reveal vast expanses of virtual worlds."

Check it out below. Will we all have holodecks in our home within the next 50 years? Sooner?
