VR Game to Teach Teachers How to Handle School Shootings


Enhanced Dynamic Geo-Social Environment, or EDGE for short, is a VR game created by the US Army and Homeland Security that was originally intended to train emergency responders, such as police and fire fighters, in realistic simulations. Recently, however, it was revealed that the game will be getting an update soon which will include a school shooting scenario, intended to train teachers on how to respond in such a situation.

Gun violence is a huge problem in the United States, with 2017 alone seeing over 300 shootings across the country, including the Sutherland Springs and Las Vegas massacres. According to a new video by Gizmodo, nearly a fourth of mass shootings in the U.S. have occurred in schools, which has prompted the creation of a new update for EDGE.

In the update, there are three playable rolls: teacher, shooter and officer. The shooter attempts to break into the school and indiscriminately kill as many people as possible while the officer tries to subdue the shooter. Meanwhile, the teacher must give orders to the kids and take actions to prevent as many casualties as possible. The teacher can perform such actions as locking and barricading doors and instructing students to line up against a wall or stay away from windows. Teachers may be distracted, however, by the sounds of gunshots or crying children, or by a child who panics and decides to run off in a random direction.

While making this VR re-creation of school shooting scenarios, the EDGE engineering team talked to a parent whose child was killed during the Sandy Hook shooting, as well as listening to audio dispatches from the Virginia Tech shooting, to create as realistic a simulation as possible. The theory is that, after being trained on how to react by playing the game, teachers will be better prepared to handle a school shooting should one occur in their school. This school shooting update is expected to become available this spring.

HTC Unveils Vive Pro – Screen Resolution and Release Date Info

HTC teased higher resolution screens for their popular HTC Vive VR gaming platform and they seem to have delivered with their latest announcement: the HTC Vive Pro. This new headset will feature two 2880×1600 OLED displays raising the sharpness of the screen by 78% compared to the currently available Vive headset. The new Vive Pro will be available in the first quarter of 2018 to existing Vive owners, with developer units heading out some time later. Unfortunately, there’s not a lot of other information available just yet.

Price, for example, has yet to be announced. Presumably this is because HTC is still figuring that part out. If this headset is presented as an upgrade to current owners, then it’s likely that there will be a few options. I, for example, would just want to buy the headset itself. I have controllers, the deluxe audio strap, and the lighthouse sensors necessary to use the Vive Pro, so buying a bundle wouldn’t work well for me. Hopefully this means a lower price point, more in-line with an updated headset instead of a total reworking.

We do know that the new headset will have dual microphones, helping with noise cancellation when chatting online. Other than that this seems like a Vive 1.5 sort of deal, enhancing what’s available without forcing players to switch to the new platform.

Along with the Vive Pro, HTC showed off their own wireless adapter technology. VR fans have been clamoring for a way to cut the cables that tether them to the PC. The Vive focuses on room scale, so moving around is key to the experience, and a big cable hurts the immersion that was so delicately crafted by the game. The wireless adapter will be available this summer.
