A few years ago, Apple CEO said that expanded reality it has a more promising future than a virtual reality. According to Cook, the latter is less appealing to users. The truth is that none of these technologies was still in the mass market.
The military terrain could become the supreme foundation for the development of the expanded reality. A statement based on a treaty, which was just signed by the Army of the United States of America, which intends to make these advances in its activities.
Million R & D investments and holograms
The US armed forces signed an agreement millionaire contract with Microsoft. This company will provide 100 thousand units of HoloLens, an expanded reality device that also displays the hologram ahead of the user's eyes.
The army will have to pay 480 million dollars to equip these "weapons" … harmless? As they commented on the armed forces, HoloLens will help "increase the lethal capability of soldiers by improving their ability to detect, decide and encounter an enemy".
Reports indicate that they will make some changes hardware original, including, for example, heat sensors and night vision systems. Thus they indicate that these helmets will not be left in experimental terrain, but will be able to go to the battlefield.
Bloomberg commented that these helmets had already been used by the Ukrainian army in 2016. The Israeli army, albeit in training, is not a war or a fight.
"HoloLens will increase the deadly power of the soldiers by improving their ability to detect, decide and encounter an enemy," they say from the US Army.
A few months ago, company employees issued an open letter to mark the reluctance of using the technology developed by this bomb.
"We are working with Microsoft to have a positive impact on people and society, hoping that the technologies that we develop will not cause harm or human suffering," they said.
And they added: "We have a lot of things We believe that what we create should not be used to fight. When we decided to work on it, we did it in the hope of giving every inhabitant of the planet a chance to achieve more things than to end their lives. "
