US lawmakers form ‘Reality Caucus’4 May 2017
A group of US politicians have formed a group focusing on virtual, augmented, and mixed reality technologies.
The cross-party group has already been dubbed the ‘Reality Caucus’.
“As these technologies continue to advance and grow, this ‘Reality Caucus’ will work to foster information sharing between Congress and our nation’s world-leading technology industry,” the group said in a statement.
“These technologies have shown tremendous potential for innovation in the fields of entertainment, education, and healthcare. As these technologies develop, questions will inevitably rise in privacy, intellectual property, and other areas.”
They added, “This is an opportunity to educate our colleagues and others to ensure Congress is doing all it can to encourage – rather than hinder – these enterprising fields.”
