Quantum 3D says that “infantry training simulation is here today”, and they’ve got a video showing how they use virtual reality to help soldiers train for the battlefield. Tell me parts of this don’t play like a video game trailer:
I find it curious that this sort of virtual reality exists and is almost perfectly suitable for a virtual reality game, but it seems like gaming companies have yet to embrace the world of VR, aside from beginning to adapt to VR stepping stones like ARG and motion-gaming.
KSDK.com has shows us another video of soldier training simulation (also from Quantum 3D) which incorporates a head mounted display. As you can see in the video, the real-world weapon that the demonstrator is using appears to be sensor-laden as well, as its in-game incarnation appears to react appropriately to it being raised and lowered:
My first thought when seeing the above video was “when can I play?” Imagine combining such input with a game like Battlefield 3 — you’re sure to have a very immersive gaming experience.
