Gaming and UAV Simulation
Perhaps, you have seen the United States Air Force Predator Unmanned aircraft command's pictures online, where a real pilot sits in side of booth in front of a screen and controls an aircraft half-way around the world doing surveillance on bad guys? Pretty cool stuff and perhaps that is the ultimate in computer gaming; serving your country, hunting down evil do'ers and International Terrorists?
Well, did you know that Microsoft Simulator now has an add-on that allows you to fly a Predator Drone or UAV just like the USAF? Just think, maybe if you get good enough they might hire you to do it in real life some day? Sound like a plan, you never know? But is it hard to fly an unmanned aerial vehicle with its body armour, using a computer, satellite link, while scanning the infrared cameras and then fire on your enemy?
It's not easy by any means, but it is possible and you can now practice to your heart's content. Maybe, your video gaming may train you to one day serve this great nation and to protect all we are and all we have build. Computer gaming has come a long way and so too has our technology, now they are one, merged into a fighting force to defend; to protect freedom, democracy and liberty the world over. UAV technology is going to be more poppular than the private jets.
Who says computer gaming cannot be a worthy skill for your future, who says computer gamers are not needed in our civilization, and who on Earth thinks computer gaming is a waste of time. Anyone who might have thought that certainly needs to wake up to the present future and rethink that assessment.
