Seminar Part 3 (March 3 2016)

(Griffiths, 2014) describes that ‘using an Oculus Rift virtual reality headset, medics-to-be can be plunged into chaotic life on the battlefield. This is a view of the scene from the ‘controller’s’ point-of-view.’ This helps out potential medics as they witness what goes on from the battlefield using a Point of View (POV) perspective. (Griffiths, 2014) also mentions that ‘the technology uses ‘head tracking’ to enable the user to look around the virtual world they have entered.’ This is similar to what the soldiers experience, however medics are shown the correct tools to treat ‘virtual’ wounded soldiers.
