Army 3d trainer

In the last 10 years the military has adopted video games not only as a means of attracting young new blood, but as a way of training their recruits.  Taking that process another step further, a big step further in fact, is the Nation Guard’s recent investment in Cubic Corporation’s COMBATREDI training system to the tune of $4.8 million.  The system uses a hi-def helmet mounted OLED screen that provides a 60×45 degree view of the virtual combat range and is complemented by a 3D stereo headset.  A system on the back tracks the trainees position, even going as far as to detect if they’re prone or if they need to replace the included gun’s magazine for a fresh set of virtual bullets.

Looks cool.  Can I get one for my Natal?

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
