There's so much agitation at higher levels for research on 'simulations' but the reality is that unless you have a big-time budget you aren't going to be at the leading edge of this field. Why not? Well, take a look at this battlefield simulation (as usual, military applications lead the way in simulation technology). With the use of innovative floor rollers, the participant can walk and move around. Paintball guns hidden in the walls of the 360 degree environment will actually shoot at him. What do you need to make one of these? "A pre-release copy of Battlefield 3… a team of top technology experts [and] the world's first, portable omni-directional treadmill [as well as] 12 paintball markers… a wireless gun system; ambient LED lighting; and an Xbox Kinect camera hack."
