3D Interactive Tech Talk – Wearables, Oculus Rift, Airbus Training

Welcome to our recurring post, 3D Interactive Tech Talk, highlighting how interactive technology is being used right now and where it’s headed.

Wearable Tech for Employees Headed Your Way!
When it comes to “industrial processing and high-tech mechanical engineering, wearable technology can create a smarter and safer factory floor. Toshiba engineers already use augmented reality apps for repairing machines.” As this article notes, smart entrepreneurs will get ahead of this curve and clean up in the coming years.

Airbus Cuts ‘On Aircraft Training’ By Half
The Airbus Competence Training (ACT) for Maintenance programs certify thousands of engineers worldwide with a “learn-by-doing” approach that reduces practical training on aircraft by 50 per cent. Imagine the cost savings if they develop this technology to be Portable, Scalable & Modular as well?

Virtual Reality Moving From “Games To Game-changing Applications”

Oculus Rift

Oculus Rift offers endless non-game benefits and is set to revolutionize the way we see – and train in – the world (eventually). AND, it’s pretty reasonably priced for something that advances immersive technology by a gigantic leap.
