Microsoft and Magic Leap will deliver to U.S. Army of the device of augmented reality


The technology of augmented reality in fact is quite perspective thing. And if some one and a half-two years ago we saw only short demonstration rollers, then today to get a full-fledged font or to use AR on some smartphones is available to everyone. And the U.S. Army has decided to go to apply further new technology in the purposes.

As reports the edition of Bloomberg, the management of U.S. Army plans to buy from the Microsoft and Magic Leap companies about 100000 fonts of augmented reality for total amount in more, than 500 million dollars. We will remind that Microsoft now with might and main develops the HoloLens helmet while their colleagues have already arranged production of a font Magic Leap One.

So why for military similar practices were necessary? First of all, augmented reality can give much more opportunities for a training of soldiers and to training in their new skills. In AR helmets it is possible to obtain the additional information "imposed" on objects of the real world that is much more effective than prerenderenny graphics of VR helmets and ordinary exercise machines. It is possible to model various fighting situations, to help soldiers to perfect skills of aiming, movement and to watch their vital indicators. Also the staff of the Defense Ministry claims that use of AR technologies can help to reduce losses of staff due to "increase in ability quicker to find the purposes and to react to them. "

A what do you think of such use of military technologies? Express in ours of telegrams chats.
