Re: A powerful training aid
Charlie, 

Yes, I also think CAVE can be useful in training. Not only business training but also at any level in education. The good old slides used in presentations could be replaced by a presentation in a CAVE. Marketing could use it, too. There are endless possibilities.

A powerful training aid
CAVEs will have many future uses, but I would think they would be particularly helpful when it comes to training in complex processes. The trainer could show in a CAVE rather than tell, through instruction or text.
