The Orlando Sentinel reports that Lockheed Martin “pulled up the curtain on a new innovation lab Tuesday,” demonstrating technologies including “3D printers, virtual and augmented reality headsets and a robotics lab meant to encourage its employees to experiment.” The 6,500-square-foot lab is located at the company’s Missiles and Fire Control campus in Orlando, Florida, and “will also be used as a recruitment tool, as Lockheed competes in a highly competitive battle for skilled workers.” Additional spaces in the lab include a “sensor, optics and laser testing site​” and an “animation lab that allows quick visualizations of concepts.” Lockheed “anticipates that the new facility will help the company create new patents and win multimillion-dollar contracts.” (Image: Virtual reality test.
