If anyone still need an evidence for the potential of VR and AR in the coming future, take the cue from the US itself. We always wonder and envy sometimes, how US is the land of innovation and discoveries? Why it is always the pioneer in very futuristic technology?
Well, the reason is obvious and we all are witness to it now. Not just the technocrats, but the government itself is enterprising enough to spend its time, energy and resources in exploring the avenues and promises the new technology holds for the world.
The U.S. House of Representatives have formed a group/caucus to study the potential of the VR and AR. Recently, the “Congressional Caucus on Virtual, Augmented, and Mixed Reality Technologies for the 115th Congress” has been formed with five co-chairs — a mix of Democratic and Republican representatives for the states of California, New York, Texas, and Washington — include:
- Suzan DelBene [D-WA]
- Yvette Clarke [D-NY]
- Bill Flores [R-TX]
- Darrell Issa [R-CA]
- Ted Lieu [D-CA]
The so-called ‘Reality Caucus’ will work to advocate for the development of virtual reality and augmented reality technology especially in the fields of entertainment, education, and healthcare.
“This is an opportunity to educate our colleagues and others to ensure Congress is doing all it can to encourage — rather than hinder — these enterprising fields,” reads the official press release.
