INDUSTRIAL STRENGTH WII. I had the opportunity to observe a virtual reality simulation of a blast furnace at a recent technical session of the Association for Iron and Steel Technology. The simulation is a project of Purdue-Calumet's Center for Innovation through Visualization and Simulation. Some of the applications being demonstrated can be steered by motion sensors on goggles or by hand-held controllers. Never mind martial arts or bowling, I want to create a break-out.
