What is a Holodeck?

A Holodeck is a product used to save different forms of content (either furniture settings or even an entire environment), similar to 'Holodecks' used in various sci-fi television shows and movies. For Second Life purposes, a holodeck allows you to rez a large variety of rooms or scenarios in limited space. Some systems even allow the scene to be located far away from its control panel, offering the convenience of large, rez-on-demand structures without tying up a large space in your house.

A handful of the known holodeck and panocube products:
