Award-winning, Baltimore-based digital agency, Mindgrub, has just finished creating the city’s first “Holodeck.” The Holodeck, short for Holographic Environment Simulator, gets its name from Star Trek’s fictional virtual reality facility. In the Star Trek universe, the Holodeck is often used for recreational activities.
Mindgrub has transformed one of the rooms at its headquarters in Locust Point into a safe and controlled environment dedicated to testing virtual reality apps and games. Through Mindgrub’s expansive virtual reality capabilities utilizing tools such as the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive headsets and handheld controllers, users can interact with a variety of virtual environments.
Mindgrub has already created a virtual reality bike experience using Oculus Rift and demoed it at various local Baltimore events, including Smart CEO’s Corporate Culture Awards to raise awareness for the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults, and the Baltimore Light City Festival. Dedicated to pushing the limitations of virtual and augmented reality, Mindgrub is actively pursuing new and exciting possibilities for virtual reality in a range of industries, from gaming and entertainment, to healthcare and education.
