Maxwell Air Force Base in Columbus believes that military training ca be taught through the famous video game device, which is virtual reality. Researchers from the base will test theories about how humans can learn through virtual reality.
“I’m really excited to have the opportunity to go through the program. I’ve hardly had any flight experience before, and we just started yesterday and I can already tell that I’m a lot better in the simulators than when I got in yesterday,” says Lt. Keegan Reynolds, Columbus Air Force Base.
“It’s really how they learn, how they approach flying in this environment, and what key factors are important to a student when trying to learn complicated tasks,” says Maj. Matthew ‘Elmo’ Elmore, Maxwell Air Force Base.
Through this program, Major Elmore believes VR can drive the future of military training and the tech industry.
