In the Star Trek universe, a chamber that can be programmed to create ultra-convincing replicas of other envieonments. A holodeck is able to synthesize actual, solid objects, albeit ones that can't exist outside the holodeck. These are primarily used for recreation, but also for simulation and training purposes.
