Virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) use data science, machine intelligence, and creativity to enable training and planning in a safe environment—without consequences. How is this playing out in battlefield simulations, education, and beyond, and what can we expect in terms of technology—and ethics—in the future?

What happens when college students experiment with tech innovation? The future of education is created.
At university campuses across the U.S., tech innovation is outrunning the classroom. With no existing curriculum to guide them, students and faculty are experimenting with a slew of new 3D printing, virtual reality and augmented reality technologies. As they tinker away in design studios and labs, they aren’t just figuring out new uses for these 21st century tools — they’re also defining how students learn.
New flavor raises awareness, virtual reality experience educates consumers and new pollinator habitat provides year-long home for millions of bees
OAKLAND, Calif., April 2, 2018 /3BL Media/ - Bees are critical to one-third of the world’s crops, including ingredients that are used in more than one-third of HÄAGEN-DAZS ice cream flavors such as Vanilla Swiss Almond, Strawberry and Rocky Road. However, bees are being threatened at a staggering rate as an estimated one-third of honey bee colonies were lost between April 2016 and March 2017.

Imagine this… You put on a pair of virtual-reality glasses. You see a school in a poor, rural Chinese village. You turn your head to see inside the door and you find a group of students gathered in a small classroom, learning with technology.
Strokes can happen to anyone at any time and the number of strokes young people experience is rising. In America, there was a 44% increase in the number of young adults hospitalized due to stroke over the last 10 years. Globally, it’s the second-leading cause of death.
Oculus, HoloLens, Cardboard –- science fiction seems to be slowly merging with real life when it comes to virtual reality. EHS is starting to embrace VR by using immersive videos and graphics to improve safety, discover flaws, and conduct training. Antea Group’s blog offers you an insight into the different features of this technology, possible benefits, and problems you should be aware of before jumping in.
