NVIDIA Holodeck: Photorealistic Collaborative Design in VR

NVIDIA Holodeck empowers designers, peers, and stakeholders to collaborate in a 3D virtual environment. By removing geographical barriers, remote teams can more easily conduct product reviews and gain immediate visual, voice, and gestural feedback from participants. Development timelines are shortened by viewing photorealistic 3D models from CAD data while reducing physical prototype iterations. See how NVIDIA Holodeck will remove barriers, speed up, and improve your entire creative process.

Use Cases



"No other car feels, looks or sounds like a Koenigsegg — each is an individually commissioned work of art, custom designed and engineered to our customers’ desires," says Christian von Koenigsegg, founder of Koenigsegg Automotive AB. "The possibilities for Holodeck technology as a tool that will allow our customers to experience the bespoke nature of their vehicle before it is built are very exciting."



"During our design process, teams of our engineers and scientists work together to imagine an idea, plan a design, create that model, experiment and test that solution, then take time to reiterate and improve the original — all steps that are crucial to mission success at NASA," says Frank Delgado, Lead for NASA's Hybrid Reality Lab. "With Holodeck, we will be able to clearly visualize our models, easily collaborate in a physically simulated environment, and review to ensure the efficiency and safety of our designs."



"At KPF we use VR to enable real-world and model scale immersion of our designs," said Cobus Bothma, Senior Associate Principal and Applied Research Director at KPF, "NVIDIA Holodeck is going to enable us to deliver on this potential, with amazingly accurate visuals and physics. And, it will allow us to collaborate with designers in our worldwide offices, our partners, and our clients, in real time. That’s a powerful game changer for our industry."
