The present and future of virtual reality news and technology

1. A new Virtual Reality system is aiming to empower North Texas veterans to deal with post-traumatic stress. The "StrongMind" system was donated to VA North Texas by the charitable organization SoldierStrong. Rather than asking veterans to recall their stressful memories as part of their therapy, they are immersed into a three-dimensional environment such as a small town, rural village or the back of vehicle, with clinicians gradually adding personalized elements that the veteran might remember, such as weather conditions, noises, or the feel of holding a weapon. “We’re finding this particular kind of treatment may draw, particularly young, digital generation service members and veterans into treatment, that they would normally avoid or not seek in a traditional format,” says Immersive tech pioneer Dr. Albert “Skip” Rizzo. He developed the system over the last 15 years at the Institute for Creative Technologies at USC, where he is the director of medical Virtual Reality. SoldierStrong said there are already at least eight additional requests for the system from VA facilities and as many as 40 requests from private interests. – KXXV
