I/ITSEC: Cutting Edge Simulation and Training Trade Show Coverage

The Best of the Rest




There was no way to capture how amazing this 3D technology looked, but I was very impressed. The company can take images or videos and reproduce a real 3D image that lets you see depth AND different angle views. When you move the film the image changes, you can even lean closer to see other angles. The effect is beyond words really, imagine a picture of a car where you can rotate the image and see the front, sides and back of the car as if it were a real model in front of you. I want to get my Ducati done, but just like the sims, the cost is a bit of an issue.




We've all seen Google Maps and were impressed when it came out, but Google Maps is like old UHF video compared to the cutting edge mapping that is being gathered now.




Windows 8 is going to get us one step closer to a true touch interface on the PC. It's good to know that large touch screen monitors are already all over the professional market, just a stone's throw away from the consumer market.




It will be awhile before we are all putting up monitors made from tent material, but we can still dream.




The flight simulator market has been pretty stagnant since the Jane's glory days, but hopefully one day we'll get another true simulator combat sim.




Enthusiasts are already adapting multi-monitors for gaming, but we still need companies to produce large surface area versions with slim bezels.




The one company that was absent from the entire show was Apple. This event was mainly a military conference and liberal MAC users could only be found on the screens, as targets.
