VR in Space: 21/03/2016

It seems you can get have an alternative reality anywhere in the universe. Augmented reality really is ‘out of this world.’ Astronauts aboard the international space station played an augmented-reality game of space invaders.

On a more serious note Tim Peak and Scott Kelly are experimenting with a new augmented reality programme working in combination with mission control to provide a much better understanding of what is happening on the space station. Ground control and the astronauts come into the virtual world to complete tasks together. This project has been called ‘Project Sidekick.’

Never before has virtual reality been used in so many applications. It is not just for gaming or entertainment but has real uses as well. The future looks bright for VR.
