The present and future of virtual reality news and technology

2. Fire departments in Australia and the U.S. are using Virtual Reality to train firefighters. Australia-based FLAIM Systems has trainees wear a heat suit controlled by software that calculates proximity and orientation to simulate the likely temperature corresponding to each VR scenario. "We can heat a firefighter up to 100 degrees Celsius or so, roughly, but only for short time frames," says the company's Founder and CEO James Mullins, adding that they can also replicate the force felt from the hose, and simultaneously measure the heart and respiration rate of the trainee. Julie Rider, an experienced firefighter, told CNN that she was impressed by the realism of the VR experience. She added she could feel her heart rate climbing as she looked around a room and watched a fire quickly spread. "It was amazing to experience the inherent risk, extreme danger and fire intensity without feeling any of the dangerous effects from the fire," she said. – CNN
