Microsoft and Magic Leap will supply the US army device augmented reality

Augmented reality is actually quite a promising thing. And if some year or two ago we saw a short demo, today to buy a full headset or use the AR on some smartphones accessible to everyone. But the US army decided to go ahead to apply the new technology to their advantage.

According to Bloomberg, the leadership of the U.S. army plans to buy from Microsoft and Magic Leap at about 100000 augmented reality headsets for a total amount of more than $ 500 million. Recall that Microsoft really does develop your helmet HoloLens, at the time, as their colleagues have already established production Magic Leap headset One.

So why the military needed such developments? Primarily, augmented reality can give far more opportunities for training soldiers and teaching them new skills. After all, the hats AR can obtain additional information "superimposed" on the real world that is much more efficient prerendering graphics, VR helmets and common equipment. You can simulate different combat situations to help the soldiers hone the skills of aiming, movement and monitor their vital signs. Also employees of the military Department argued that the use of AR technologies can help to reduce the loss of personnel due to the "increasing capacity faster to detect targets and respond to them."
