An augmented future

The sci-fi show Star Trek had a holo-deck for the crew to play and train in. We will have an entire holo-world, one where the real world and holograms collide.

I am inclined to believe that we will fast be following the Japanese mindset and feel increasingly at ease with technology permeating our lives, that we will start to treat machines and intelligent software more and more like people, or at least like sentient creatures. This is something that seemed quite alien to the Western mindset when I was young, but times, the are a changing.
