The idea of Virtual Reality (VR) has been around since the 1900’s, but recently we have seen rapid growth in the capabilities and utilization of this technology. We’ve noticed a number of companies and institutions pursuing the use of VR in litigation. As the Nation’s leading Case Expense Funding provider, it would be remiss of us not to recognize VR as potential case expense for law firms in the near future.
Kineticorp, a Denver-based forensic engineering and visualization firm, is currently getting a jump start on the VR and litigation trend. Forensic Animator Tomas Owens is leading Kineticorp’s team of visual artists and engineers in the development of virtual reality-based car accident scenes. Kineticorp’s goal is to better understand the effectiveness of virtual reality or augmented reality when it comes to communicating the accurate physics of a reconstructed accident. So far, the team is in the research stage, but they are offering private accident reconstruction demonstrations to select firms throughout the U.S. to obtain feedback. You can learn more about their current research and demonstrations by viewing the video below or clicking here.
