  • Hi, I am currently working on getting a non-fiction book together on the specification for a Holodeck and in doing so writing software to simulate the system. I am in my book going to show a working model of a photonic computer and hopefully if time allows how it can drive a volumetric display and show how the virtual environment of a holodeck works. The book will have about 1/2 on the Photonic computer design then some information about the operating system of choice and then about the virtual environment of a Holdeck. It is going to take me about 2-4 years to get my book ready for publication so I have plenty of time to get a plan together for marketing of my book of which I have chosen the self publishing path.
