Beyond the Hype of Virtual Reality for the Courtroom

“Researchers at Staffordshire University’s Center of Archeology and Forensic and Crime Science this year earned a grant to explore new ways that VR technology can be used to recreate and present crime scenes and accidents for trial. Caroline Sturdy Colls, head of the project at Staffordshire, explained that while they hope to expand on existing legal applications of virtual reality, many such technologies already exist.

“A number of novel, digital non-invasive methods now exist which have the potential to increase search efficiency and accuracy, permit access to difficult and/or dangerous environments, create a more accurate record of buried or concealed evidence and provide more effective means of presenting evidence in court,” Colls said.”
