The administration will be virtual reality helmet Oculus Rift into cyber war weapons

A few days ago, the United States department of defense advanced research projects agency for Oculus Rift as a “prototype”, built a virtual reality helmet has launched a network attack ability.

reports pointed out that the “weapon”, can provide visual measurements for network perpetrator network simulation graphics, data, so that more accurate, more deeply to the target network attacks.

we see in the analog video, the field of wear of the tool, the spherical images. Each ball each representing a different network attack missions. Click on a goal, in accordance with the user can set a good attack mode, precision of target network.
