The U.S. military is funding a small army of game developers, filmmakers, special-effects experts, artists, and engineers at the Institute for Creative Technologies at the University of Southern California. The systems and software they are developing there provide a new training method for soldiers: complex and startlingly realistic immersive simulations for situations both on and off the battlefield.
