Check out this Battlefield 3 Simulator

1 min read


The UK’s Gadget show has put together the ultimate Battlefield 3 rig. No it’s not just a high-powered PC – it’s a full on, immersive simulator, using motion-control roller-flooring that allows players to walk about as if actually inside the game, coupled with an Apple-infused gun,   Igloo Vision projection dome, and a suit with 12 paintball markers that allows the player, in real time, to feel the enemy gunfire and ambient LED lighting to increase the immersion. A Kinect hack brings the rest of the player’s movements to the game.

It’s incredibly impressive stuff, allowing for hyper-immersion. – bringing the promise of 90’s virtual reality tech to life. It’s pretty amazing – and despite what NVIDIA might say, this really seems like the way it’s meant to be played.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
