|Ask HN: I think I know how to build a Holodeck-like 3D projector, now what?|

|For the past 6-7 months I have this idea that I'm slowly but surely developing in my head of building a holedeck-like 3D projector, essentially allowing both fully immersive virtual reality and true augment reality.|
I don't have much hardware technical background (I'm a web developer / designer), but I have researched the subject, and all the components are already existing and are a working technology, some are available commercially others are used mainly in advanced robotic and avionic research labs, but all are accessible and quite cheap.
I believe that a working prototype can be developed in 6-9 months, and a commercial product in 18-36 months, leading to a fully immersive display technology that can work indoors and outdoors, support a lot of users at the same time and providing a different image for each of the users depending on their location in space, and it would cost no more than $2000 for the first commercial product.
What do I do? Who do I talk to?
