The HTC Vive makes professional simulations dramatically affordable. Watch a high speed train driver reacting to an emergency in VR.

Virtual Reality has been thriving in the training of pilots since the advent of virtual reality. Flight simulators and other training facilities use VR in some form. The new generation of VR headsets like the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive are good enough for professional simulations.

In a video published by China's Xinhua, a high speed train driver is training an emergency. He is wearing an HTC Vive and uses Vive's controllers to pull levers, open cabinets and more in rapid succession. The guy is likely also a pro in Call of Duty.

I have noticed already several times that professionals prefer the HTC Vive. Every time I spot a professional VR application, the HTC Vive is used and not the Rift. The availability of the controllers are a big advantage for HTC and the availability. HTC Also launched a special HTC Vive for business program.\
