Augmented Military

Implications - Although a pattern that can be observed across industries, virtual and augmented reality technology has found a host of particularly effective applications for military personnel. Especially effective for replicating the emotional stresses of combat, virtual and augmented reality technology has seen militaristic applications for both in-field and training scenarios. Such uses of the technology serve to prove that these innovations are not a mere form of entertainment, but have essential and at times crucial industrial applications.
