Microsoft has announced a new "visual simulation platform," dubbed ESP, to be released in January 2008. The company imagines the toolkit will be used to create applications for training, learning, modening, military, and aviation.
great scan. with virtual learning environments already proving themselves as super effective tools recently in smaller, more pocketed environments, i think microsoft’s entry into this space will definitely bring the benefits and awareness to the mainstream.
It seems that Microsoft is finally publicly reacting to SL and Google Earth. Certainly it bodes well for the broader simulational software market, which benefits all. Gotta wonder is Microsoft is getting into the game a bit late though? I guess it’s all going to come down to how good a platform ESP actually is.
