How would you like to escape to a virtual reality like on Star Trek?

According to the show I watched on Wormholes we are not close to inventing a time machine.
First we have to understand the laws of Quantum Mechanist. However we will have faster computers in the near future. A Quantum computer could be fast enough to generate a Virtual Reality like on Star Trek.
The down side is some people might become addicted. A new way to escape reality.

It would be fun as long as you have complete control of the situation.

You're right, when you consider the amount of time people spend watching TV, or playing computer games, a Holodeck could become very addicting.
The Holodeck episodes of Star Trek were something I thought were interesting for an episode or two, but then I began to dislike them. I mean, how many times does the thing have to go haywire and threaten the lives of everyone on the ship, before you rip out it's circuits.. permanently? For me, if it happens once... maybe it can stay, if my engineers guarantee it's been fixed.... twice... out it goes. Keeping it onboard made everyone look like knuckleheads.

I can see a time when we'll have to slow computers down for some uses. Conceivably, they could cross the boundaries of time... machines that have answers, before we finish, or even begin asking the question. That could pose a problem for everyday use. :)

Yes Kraven I agree.
They said, on Wednesdays Wormhole show. We will have the technology to create virtual reality in the near future.
I hope you get to see the show soon.
We need Quantum Computers to do it. Our current computers are too slow.
