“Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, and Sensory Devices
Rather than a traditional jury trial, we’ll be utilizing the new Virtual and Augmented Reality with Sensory Device (VARS option) now offered by the Orange County Superior Court. This new service is designed to create a virtual courtroom. For those of you not familiar with VR or AR, here’s a glimpse of how this tech works [click to watch].
Instead of having to fight traffic and drive down to the courthouse, I’ll be conducting most of the jury trial from the convenience and familiarity of my office. The secure cloud-based VARS service allows me to use any devices such as an Oculus Rift, PlayStation VR, Samsung Gear VR or the HTC Vive to communicate and try my case. Opposing counsel, our judge, the court staff, and witnesses will all be using similar technology.”
