Earlier this year, Nvidia unveiled its Holodeck. The product is a virtual world in which all of the laws of physics apply, so images cast shadows, objects experience gravity and objects act as they should.
If you’re a Trekkie like me, you’re likely familiar with the Holodeck on the Starship Enterprise from Star Trek: The Next Generation. There is one significant difference between the Star Trek Holodeck and Nvidia’s. In the TV show, the crew often used the virtual world to get away from their jobs, whereas Nvidia created its Holodeck to help people do their jobs better.
