Woman wearing a virtual reality maskIf you have seen any of the incarnations of Star Trek, then you are probably familiar with the concept of a "holodeck". 

For those not familiar with the term, a holodeck is basically a room that can simulate different environments as holograms, but the holograms feel nearly real. 

So how in the world could we possibly make a hologram that you can touch and feel? With sound, that is how. 

Watch this very interesting SciShow video to learn more about this fascinating research and how close we are to making it happen. 

Leave a message below and let me know what kind of virtual reality environment you would create if you had a holodeck.
