September 4, 2018 - Did you ever have to try walking while wearing the "drunk goggles" in school? It's a memory that some of our Exaptive team members were reminded of this morning.
Claire Robison, Shannan Callies, and Dave King toured a few labs in the Federal Aviation Administration offices in Oklahoma City today. They each tried the pair of training goggles that simulate being in a spinning aircraft. Afterward, Claire noted all three team members veered to the left when trying to walk a straight line while wearing the goggles.
The team even heard about some exaptations that have affected pilots, like training designed for ice skaters that helps pilots prevent uncontrolled spins.
