@Microsoft develop a @StarTrek style holo-deck in your home?

Remember the old @StarTrek movies with Voyager where you could go into a “Holo-Deck” room and holograms get created that allow you to play out various scenarios and learn how to do stuff? @Microsoft have just released video footage of students doing exactly that. they have turned a normal living room into a “Holo-deck” using prejection cameras and Kinect motion sensors. This is a HUGE jump into a new future, not just for home users, but for so many other applications. Can you imagine the ability to use this to learn how to do real life work on big machinery or even to train students in other areas where they may not normally have the money to go?
