  • The Most Realistic Battlefield 3 Simulator Out There

    http://www.gameblurb.net/news/check-...tor-out-there/

    Those beautiful HD graphics and fantastic sounds wasn’t enough for you? Think you need something more realistic for Battlefield 3? Well the Gadget Show seems to have what you’re looking for. Taken from the excerpt:

    “This is a world first. A unique FPS simulator that turns gaming into reality as you move, aim, fire and get shot within a 360-degree immersive environment.

    Using a pre-release copy of Battlefield 3 and a team of top technology experts from across Europe we’ve built a truly one of a kind simulator.

    Centred on the world’s first, portable omni-directional treadmill (designed by Swedish company MSE Weibull) the simulator lets you control the movements of a Battlefield 3 character with your own body. Other key technology employed includes: 12 paintball markers that allow the player, in real time, to feel the enemy gunfire experienced in the game; a wireless gun system; ambient LED lighting; and an Xbox Kinect camera hack.”

    The full Gadget Show episode premieres in the UK on Monday 24th October 2011 at 8pm on Channel 5. God damn I wish this kind of programming in the States.

            A Battlefield 3 simulator? Isn't that just Battlefield 3?

              The paintball guns are a great touch.

                I'm excited to try it but I know the end result. An empty wallet and sadness that I cannot afford to have it at home. I may not go try it, probably just go paintball for real but I will definitely be tuning into The Gadget Show.

                I do feel that something like this could come home in a about a decade but much smaller like always. Sony is prototyping small screen VR headsets with OLEDs and some researchers in Munich already created a minimalistic omnidirectional carpet. Obviously face tracking would not work with this but there's still Optical and IR tracking.

                  Wonder if Airsoft guns would be more effective as hit indicators. Might be less paint to clean up.

                    Thats pretty freakin cool! I think i saw a thing on discovery channel a year ago similar to the omnidirectional treadmill. And you probably wouldnt use paintballs in that, more likely marbles! Jk! Probably more like rubber training rounds lol. Which btw hurt a hell of alot more then regular paintballs. I took one to the throat a few years ago...wicked painful!

                              Very cool. The immersion there is the key to an amazing experience. I know if all the tech was honed and working well I would pay good money to have an experience in there. It would be a lot of fun!
