Went to a cracking BCS/IEE lecture by Prof Bob Stone from UoB on Virtual Reailty. His main thesis being that a) kids are immersed in pseudo-3D games as much as any one ever was by real VR headsets and b) that games platforms enables VR on the cheap. As this generation grows up watch out for new and innovative uses (and deployments) of VR. ..and anybody who flies Space 1999 Eagle interceptors or takes on the Indepedence Day mothership in Microsoft Flight Simulator is OK by me!
