The US Navy is testing a virtual reality kit for future military tactics

Oculus Rift - a great set of virtual reality. Originally created for video games, it has already found application in the study of gender issues, the management of UAVs, and even in the simulator guillotine. And in the future he has every chance even to go to war.


The US Navy is currently testing the Oculus Rift as part of its Project BlueShark program. The goal of this project is to present what the controls of a ship can look like taking into account the development of technologies in the coming decade. Screens and even futuristic displays on ultramodern ships like “USS Zumwalt” are limited to only two dimensions. But a real battle, with ships on the surface, submarines under water, airplanes in the air, as well as rockets, torpedoes, and depth charges, which at any moment rush into space at unimaginable angles - more than three-dimensional.

In the above picture, you can see John Moore from the US Marine Corps Military Tactics Laboratory investigating a ship using his virtual avatar standing on its upper deck. Icons on the display show other ships that are nearby, and since Moore's avatar is above, he can see them around his ship.

        Game by game, of course, and computers are probably great for training.
        However, learning to control UAVs, aircraft, tanks, as well as design and build the above - hmm, however. Reality makes its own adjustments, and for the Yankees for some reason, more and more often.

    The game is good, but more and more often the Yankees confuse games with reality, and this is regrettable.

      Do you think they are completely stupid? No, since they are not stupid in matters of state interest.

    all this seems to me to be created and implemented only in order to disguise the personnel problem, they will soon be in the army and there will be no one to serve if even now they are accepting everyone in the army .... and recently the article was like in rocket their troops are not all right, what then to talk about other types of troops ... so maybe in the near future you will just have to come to the USA, see and capture without war

      Woodpeckers, everyone would play toys!

      In the 40 years, the Germans began to create rockets, space rockets, for deploying in orbit mirrored weapons that can burn everything on earth. They first created cruise missiles, the world's first computer. The German woman has patented the principle of mobile communication, without which no mobile phone now works. And much more. And the woodpecker is one who is trying, as in the Stone Age, with his beak to hammer to a complete lateness ....

      Yeah, and 100 years ago they said that tanks would not replace cavalry, and that aviation in the army was a blessing, well, keep up the good work. negative

      There is nothing to invent here. Already invented. This is HAARP, we don’t know the name. A few seconds of impact on the ionosphere and the whole continent are left without electricity in general and for a long time.

        There is also an electromagnetic pulse - it knocks out all the electronics in the vicinity in an instant. I think that an electromagnetic pulse will become our main caliber in a hypothetical battle with the United States.

          An electromagnetic pulse is a ballistic missile with a nuclear charge. This is the beginning of a thermonuclear war. And HAARP is a covert operation, like they say nature is to blame. Try, prove, to start a war.

        And who knows something like ours? And who knows how they really are? Maybe they have things cooler than lasers, railguns, bionic prostheses. Only everything is classified.

        Maybe we have something that will only be shown in the future.

      Americans - sculpt masters virtualka. Clancy wrote the book, and the guys from Anapolis borrowed the script and created a computer stimulator based on it to make decisions at various levels of force control. The situation can be set differently, launching launching, changing the composition of forces, their state.
      At one time, we also had trainers for training, UTU "Attack", a higher level - "Ocean", for the purpose of navigation - a wheelhouse. Technique and digital technologies have made great strides forward, we also have similar "toys", but I don't remember three-dimensional ones. Maybe now they have appeared.

    You generally reject technological progress! At one time, an atom was considered an indivisible and minute particle of matter. I believe that everything that creates human thought should be embodied. Another thing is how far the practical use is and how immoral this invention is. Something, perhaps, should even be prohibited. Compare the development of Europe and the development of Aboriginal Australia. They will be able to resist the aggression of the Europeans - you yourself know what is not!

    How many Americans looked at, the thought so does not leave that sometimes they replay with their gadgets. War is not a game at all and the main qualities of technology are not in the presence of 3D functions
