Military improves immersive video games


With plans to reduce troop deployment, the military must look into detailed video games in order to provide soldiers effective training for real life situations, according to Wired magazine. 

With a new system called the VIPE Holodeck, supervisors will be able to add in threats such as IEDs while the soldier plays the game.


“To enhance that training, operators can drop threats into the environment, including IEDs and enemy shooters, as well as signals that should tip them off to potential threats and see how they respond before they actually find themselves in that situation,” according to WIRED writer Allen McDuffee.
