(CEDMagazine)  Several members of Congress stated that AR and VR technologies have shown enough potential to merit encouragement by lawmakers. U.S. Representatives Bill Flores (R-Texas), Yvette Clarke (D-N.Y.), Suzan DelBene (D-Wash.), Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), and Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) announced this week they formed and will serve as co-chairs of the Congressional Caucus on Virtual, Augmented, and Mixed Reality Technologies for the 115th Congress.
“As these technologies continue to advance and grow, this ‘Reality Caucus’ will work to foster information sharing between Congress and our nation’s world-leading technology industry,” the co-chairs say in a statement. “These technologies have shown tremendous potential for innovation in the fields of entertainment, education, and healthcare.”
