The New York Times featured Coming Home, an ICT project led by Jacquelyn Morie. Coming Home is a destination within the virtual world Second Life that provides camaraderie, support and resources for returning troops. “The real world actually can be affected by being in the virtual world,” Morie said. ICT specializes in building virtual humans, which it uses for marketing and negotiations, or to act as museum guides or help with virtual diagnoses, the story stated. Next year, the institute will do pilot studies on the healing center with an Army hospital, the article noted.
