Cutting-Edge Virtual Reality Lets Russian Troops Trade Tanks for Tech


Virtual reality is becoming the hot new technology trend. VR allows users to enter a new world by putting on a helmet and headphones. It's rapid development and many potential applications has caused the Russian military to take notice and start a VR soldier training program of its own. The Russian Defence Ministry tested new virtual reality combat simulators in Ryazan on Wednesday, designed to prepare the Russian Armed Forces for modern warfare and to train their skills on heavy military vehicles and weapons without actually having to use them. Soldiers participanting in the simulation were equipped with a set of nine sensors, a data transmission system, a virtual reality helmet and high-tech simulator rifles. The simulation takes soldiers through an urban battlefield and puts them in many different challenging and unusual situations. This simulation is only the beginning, they will only become more realistic from here on out. What do you think about training soldiers with virtual reality?

  • VR Flying Simulator 'Birdly' Lets You Fly Like a Bird Between NYC Skyscrapers

    It's been a dream of humans to fly through the sky at least since the time of Leonardo Da Vinci. Although we now have jetpacks and wingsuits, there wasn't a way for us to experience the sensation of flying between skyscrapers until now. This is Birdly, a virtual reality flying simulator that, unlike Red Bull, actually gives you wings. People were seen flapping virtual wings on Birdly at the 2017 SXSW festival on Wednesday. Birdly, the full-body virtual reality flying simulator, combines VR, music, and a wind generator to create the sensation of flying. Users flat their arms on the machine to flap wings in the simulation and generate lift. The idea for Birdly was conceived for a research project at the Zurich University of the Arts in 2013 and it was brought out onto the market in December 2015. How would you like to be free as a bird?
