Studies have shown that use of stereoscopic visualization during training improves both understanding and retention of the course material. Stereo viewing is used in flight simulation and other complex activities because it makes the situation more realistic and helps the learner progress quicker. This application is sometimes referred to as “Serious Games.” The players of serious games are learning skills to help them do their job or accomplish their mission. While playing games can be great fun, there are other real life tasks where losing a game can mean life or death. So people immersed in these games truly are serious about getting it right. A stereoscopic viewpoint can assist in reaching this goal.
