VR Training US Army

The U.S. Army is using immersive VR/360 media for training purposes.

They have been creating realistic 3D simulations of various scenarios to introduce soldiers to accurate combat experiences. These first iterations of VR training are expected to “enable units to enter live training at a much higher level of proficiency,” according to Maj. Gen. Maria Gervais, deputy commanding general of the U.S. Army Combined Arms Center-Training.

VR Training is becoming widely accepted and practiced as a legitimate form of job training for nearly any profession in almost every industry.

SpaceX VR

The founder of Tesla and SpaceX, Elon Musk, announced that SpaceX’s manned mission to orbit the moon and return safely to Earth will be equipped with a VR live stream, allowing you to immerse yourself into history as it’s being made.

Musk, who is widely regarded as one of the most innovative and influential business magnates of his generation, shows a commitment to immersive VR/360 media with this announcement.

He released few details, but claimed that the goal is to be ready for the mission by 2023. VR/360 technology is progressing so rapidly that it’s hard to predict where it may be in 5 years, but he’s got enough faith in the technology to make it apart of what will be one of his greatest accomplishments.
