Sgt. Star, the life-sized virtual Army guide created by the ICT mixed reality research and development group, paid a visit to ICT in the 18-wheel Army Interactive Van that is one of his current homes. Personnel from the Army’s Interactive Van team led a demonstration of the Sgt.’s role as a fully engaging member of the van’s exhibition team. ICT’s virtual Sgt. Star answers questions on topics including Army careers, training, education and money for college. He can also handle queries about the technology behind his development and explain how his creation fits in with plans for future Army training environments. The stop at ICT was part of a West Coast road trip that also included visits to high schools and colleges in the region.
