Amazing augmented reality

The RAF Chinook helicopter training facility was opened yesterday in Odiham, Hampshire.

The simulators, installed by Lockheed Martin, give aircrews an incredibly realistic experience of flying the real thing. The added 'techie' genius allows for flight formation training, achieved by connecting the simulators to a central bank of computers that generate an augmented reality world that they all fly in. The helicopters all see each other in flight, are able to engage the same virtual targets ... wow!

Every school-boy's dream. (and cameraman's....!)
