Virtual reality: The training video for nuclear engineers

Take a look at the virtual reality training programmes that will soon be used to train nuclear engineers.

Researchers at the University of Exeter have teamed up with VR programmers Cineon Training to produce training for high-risk jobs.

Funded by the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, the immersive technology means engineers can be trained before the facilities have even been built.

They are also developing counter-terrorism exercises for the Metropolitan Police.
