"This week I saw something that not many engineers have – an immersive virtual reality 3D environment from IC.IDO, a newly acquired division of ESI. This technology is more than wii for engineers – there are true practical applications of this. But you’ll be hard pressed to get your hands on one any time soon. There are less than 100 of these environments in use so far, primarily at the large automobile manufacturers. I had to go to ESI HQ in Paris to see the demo. But you don’t really see the demo, it’s more like being in it."
