Of course you already experience virtual reality 24/7/52. Anything and everything you experience is courtesy of your sensory apparatus, your memories, and being self-aware. If reality is always experienced within your mind then you already exist in a virtual reality 'world'. That's especially the case when you dream. That could also literally be the case. Some characters came over as real and some characters were virtually real. What if in this (holodeck) world you are actually one of those virtual reality characters? Welcome to the world of virtual reality. Virtual reality is definitely one iGaming trend that will start taking over in 2018!
