Asking, “could VR be for medicine what CAD was for architects?” Fast Company reports:
When I take off my goggles, I’m not standing in a human heart anymore. I’m standing in a multimillion-dollar virtual reality “cave” off I-95 in the Waltham, Massachusetts, headquarters of Dassault Systèmes.
Dassault is a 3-D software design company you probably never have heard of. The company sells powerful 3-D simulation systems to companies like Tesla that lets it, for example, crash test its latest car designs in virtual reality, no dummies required. Another client is Boeing, which uses Dassault’s software to design and test plane parts virtually. The benefits are that new parts and designs can be tested without building—or destroying—physical models.
