Kinect to Teach Police “Use of Force” Options
Ashley Allen / 2 years ago
A new piece of software for the Windows version of Microsoft’s motion-sensing Kinect peripheral could be used to teach cops how to deal with confrontational situations.
The system uses MILO Range, an “interactive use of force, tactical judgement training, and firearms training system”, using video footage to simulate hostile situations, to which officers can respond to verbally, with a baton, a pistol, or just some sweet fight moves (above).
The footage looks hilarious, in a Night Trap for the SEGA Mega-CD kind of way. I’m not sure that’s what they were going for.
