Yeah you heard me right! you think to yourself what the hell VR has to do with the great movie series?
Some smart scientist from University of Zurich created a forensic “holodeck”. Yeah, a place where they recreate crime scenes in 3D. A place where a judge or jurors can explore the scene during trial.
They’ve used Oculus rift, the OptiTrack optical tracker, a laser scanner from Geomagic and 3DS MAX software for it. The purpose of this project was to give the Judiciary system a tool to make the judges and Jury understanding the most accurate as possible the crime scene.
Nice uses of VR isn’t it?
