Battlefield 3 immersive simulator – The Gadget Show

Wow. Wow, wow, wow, wow! Forget your indoor swimming pools, your flash cars, basements converted into home cinemas and all the other traditional trappings of multi-millionaire’s home from an episode of MTV Cribs, if I had the space and the money I’d build one of these.

A fully immersive gaming rig. Omnidirectional moving treadmill to let you walk around for real. Game driven lighting and surround sound. 180 degree floor to ceiling video screen. Motion sensing crouch / jump controls. In hand gun controls for both weapons and viewing. And it shoots back at you for real.

Well done The Gadget Show.
