Navy Experimenting with Virtual Reality

From the Daily Mail (yes, the Daily Mail, so try to avoid retching if possible):
The US Navy has given a glimpse into the future of war - and it has gone virtual.  In this stunning image researchers show off the first attempt at a virtual ship's command centre. Using the Oculus rift headset, it shows a soldier on a virtual ship.

However, the Navy has remained tight-lipped about its plans for virtual training. The project, codenamed Blueshark, it testing how technology can be used by the Navy in 2015. It's official description is: 'a mix of near-term and further out technologies. It is an ongoing conversation about what the future of collaboration will be like, and how technology can assist in that endeavor.'
