South Dakota School of Mines & Technology Puts Grants to Use

The South Dakota School of Mines & Technology has $40,000 in grant funds to use developing and testing augmented reality technology, reports the Rapid City Journal.  Augmented reality imposes computer images into the real world on a type of pedestal for interaction.  The SDSM&T will purchase Microsoft HoloLens, tablets, and other gear to test if augmented reality should be used in classrooms. 

A key task in this project is to create and write a standard language and develop software.  If successful, other Rapid City businesses would be able to utilize the technology. 

For more information about the SDSM&T, visit the Black Hills Knowledge Network's online news archives.  You can learn more about education and training in the Black Hills by visiting the Black Hills Knowledge Network issue hub.
