To preface, let me just say that virtual reality is not a gimmick. It’s not going anywhere. And it could change your life for better or worse. Tomorrow. Imagine for a moment that you own a private island. And you can go to it whenever you like in an instant. Or perhaps a tea room in a bamboo forest, where you can meditate while five of your children destroy your suburban household.That fantasy is a present option of the Samsung Gear VR, the future of wireless virtual reality technology.

In the shadows of consumer-accessible augmented reality, a Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) training program known as Accelerated Learning has laid the groundwork for reinventing how we train our military–with virtual reality. In the early 2000s, DARPA conducted neuroscience research to build cognitive metrics tracking brain performance for attention, distraction, and drowsiness during military simulations. The results of this research are beginning to produce technological innovations that could forever change how we train our military and play our video games.
