We are seeing more and more news around government entities adopting virtual worlds as pilot programs. Of course, this is a good thing… but one must wonder how many we don’t even know about.
I found this valuable article on the Army adopting the use of simulations and virtual worlds for training. It just re-iterates the value of simulators for military training purposes in preparing the next generation of warfighters.
The Air Force purchasing land and set-up “MyBase” in Second Life is another prime example. Many technologies have come together to make military simulation and virtual world training a success in the 21st century.
