Reporter Elizabeth Lee attended the VRLA Meetup at ICT’s Mixed Reality Lab and covered Project BlueShark, a virtual reality interface for imagining the future of communication and collaboration.
According to Mark Bolas, Mark Bolas, the aim of this Navy-funded effort is to imagine technology that will be available in 15 years so Navy ships can become lighter, better protected and provide more information to sailors to help them make better decisions.
”Instead of looking at data on 2-D screens, for example, you can have it floating as a 3-D map in front of you,” he said. “If you’re going to build a ship, you better be thinking about the design of that ship at least 15 years before you build it because that’s how long it’s going to take to make it.”
