A holoband is a user interface technology that allows for a seemingly fully immersive virtual reality experience in a space known commonly as V-world. Holobands are worn in front of the eyes and secured on the bridge of the nose and behind the ears, similar to eyeglasses. Real-world sounds and sights can interfere with the experience (CAP: "Know Thy Enemy"), so users must keep their eyes closed.

The device was invented by Daniel Graystone. The success of the technology made Graystone a celebrity scientist, who frequently appeared on television and in other media. An interactive avatar of Graystone in the halls of Graystone Industries appears the first time a holoband is used, providing a simple user's guide and directing the users to popular and legally licensed V-world sites (CAP: "Know Thy Enemy").

Holobands have become a prominent technological and economic presence in Caprican society. For a time, holoband devices and associated V-world site development accounted for sixty percent of Graystone Industries' revenue (CAP: "Gravedancing"). According to the The Caprican, holobands can be found in every classroom in the Zoe Graystone Computer Science Wing of Apollo University.[1]
