Augmented reality is changing the way U.S. soldiers view the battlefield.

Video recently released by a branch of the U.S. Army’s research division demonstrates a new heads-up display in simulated action. As soldiers infiltrate a building, they’re fed real-time intelligence that shows them the shortest path to a target and potential threats. The AR feed also distinguishes friend from foe and provides real-time location information.

Providing these type of battlefield improvements is just one way programmers are changing the world. Get a head-start on a programming technology career with a degree from a university focused on teaching science, technology, engineering and math.
