Holodeckables are holodecked objects which can be loaded as a holodeck scene via a HUD (Heads Up Display) anywhere throughout a 3D virtual environment such as Second Life (SL). Any object which can be holodecked (dependent on object permissions in SL) can be loaded and cleared/deleted SIM-wide (anywhere on the virtual island) via a HUD.
In addition to having educational potential, holodeckables can be used in a variety of utilitarian ways. For example, any objects which need to be periodically but not permanently present on the virtual island can be rezzed (made to appear) via a holodeck HUD. Once the objects are no longer needed, they can simply be cleared.
