5. Real Holodeck
Think of the Hologram Table by Euclideon Holographics as a real-life Star Trek holodeck, as it tailors vision to each user through motion-tracking glasses. Holographic objects are then fully interactive and can be animated as well as zoomed in / out / moved around. With Euclideon's unlimited detail software, you can interact with everything from hyper realistic sand, to an entire country while maintaining the same graphical resolution.
4. USS Enterprise-Inspired Office Building
Situated in the coastal city of Changle in China's Fujian Province, this office building has been modeled after the iconic Starship Enterprise. It was commissioned by Chinese technology executive and ultimate Star Trek fanatic Lui Deijian, and the building is currently the headquarters of game developers Netdragon. The 260 meter structure took approximately four years to build, with American TV station CBS approving the rights for the Chinese company to model their office after the USS Enterprise NCC-1701-E.

1. Acoustic Hologram Tractor Beam
UK researchers have developed a sonic tractor beam that generates acoustic holograms via the manipulation of high-amplitude sound waves. These acoustic holograms, which can take various shapes, are capable of picking up and moving small objects, such as polystyrene beads. The system that uses an array of 64 tiny loudspeakers to generate high-pitched, high-intensity sound waves that act as a force field to hold an object in place. It then becomes possible to move or rotate the objects by controlling the output of the loudspeakers.
