Virtual Glovebox (VGX): Advanced Astronaut Training and Simulation System for Life Science Experiments Aboard the International Space Station (ARC-14756)
This "Virtual Glovebox"(VGX) is designed to integrate ultra-high resolution imaging technology and force-feedback devices with high-fidelity graphics and real-time computer simulation engines to provide a realistic immersive environment. In the future, this system may be used on Earth by astronauts to conduct experiments in a simulated real-time microgravity environment. In addition, the VGX software and simulation environment may be taken aboard the Space Station allowing astronauts to rehearse established procedures or practice novel protocols prior to performing actual experiments or tasks.
