Here's one that will take over gaming 10 years from now. A real Holodeck room in your house where you can battle and adventure in virtual reality, but with touch. Be a gladiator or ninja or indiana jones.

Reward: xbox for now

Current technology can do the holograms but, touch is something altogether different. To 'feel' a hologram, I'm guessing you would have to create a twin or exact duplicate of that hologram with a sound hologram. The sound would be outside the human hearing range (probably ultrasonic) and only be directed at points where your body contacts a hologram. This way, if you touch a VISUAL hologram, the SOUND hologram intersects at the point of touch and emulates what it is suppose to feel like. This would, in effect, cause a PHYSICAL hologram at the point of touch. Hope this helps.

It's so hard to explain things like this without drawings.
