    I honestly had no idea. It's not a surprise either, tech like that hardly reaches our shores. I don't know why, but it doesn't.
    And how is using the suit? must be a thrill! :rockout:

    I dunno how it feels myself...I do know, however, that the US Army has been using then for at least 20 years. A family friend trains some of the techs who build and maintain the US Army sims.

    I like it, cool concept, but I don't need to feel that movement, especially that exaggerated, I wouldn't feel like I was driving something real, too hard to simulate g's, would just feel like another way to fake game to me.

    Too much Top Gear watching for you, remember Americas big Cadillac is the fastest 4 door sedan to ever lap Nuremburg and it costs about half that of it's Euro competition. And the ZR1 and Vipers knock on Lambos and Ferraris for much less also.

    Though what is the purpose of that? I mean, if you're trying to simulate g-force, why the need of a racing video game and /or a monitor for that matter? Why not just sit in a chair and be thrown around aimlessly?

    There's no appropriate correlation between RELEVANT g-force.

    This thing was reacting as if he was in a fighter plane dogfight.


    Cool device, but way exaggerated or more importantly the wrong setup.




    Shh, you're not allowed to say that don't you know?
    You might as well just start talking about race politics!
    1Kurgan1 says thanks.

    Eeew, with that you'd really want to drive smooth, or you could hurt yourself for real in a crash :D Or at least throw up :p

    I'd have the seatbelt on tight, seems he is more brave.

    :slap:

    Software problems, sure, but damn it, that looks like a stationary roller coaster. But I guess by your comment you don't like rollercoasters.

    Who cares about how realistic it looks, it looks FUN!!!!

    :laugh:

    Looks cool but how long is that monitor/TV going to last on that?

    Seems like it was there strong, but don't thing the TV was built for that kind of abuse :D

    Liking your avatar! Might have to "rip it". I have a Commodore 16, also black. (well now it's a mini-ITX project that I didn't get to finish. Couldn't get a right size keyboard and didn't come up with good enough method to attach it sort of nicely).
