The Ultimate Battlefield 3 Simulator unveiled on the Gadget Show
Andy Ruffell / 5 years ago
Which one of you has never dreamed of the best FPS simulator? Unfortunately I am not announcing the availability of it, more the unveiling/demonstration of it.
This coming Monday, on October 24, the Gadget Show will present their unique and one-of-a-kind FPS simulator running on Battlefield 3.
This feat was achieved by grouping together a team of top technology experts from all across Europe.
You can let your mouse and keyboard at home, with a 360 degree immersive environment, your movements are controlled by your body on the world’s first multi-directional treadmill, thanks to the Swedish-based company MSE Weibull, on which you become the controller. A wireless gun system is in charge of your shooting, ambient LED light is added to give more reality and a Xbox Kinect camera hack is also used, most likely for body tracking.
Here’s another one-of-a-kind simulation, 12 paintball markets allow to player to be entirely immersed in the feeling of the game, and by feeling, I do mean pain… I would suggest trying not to be exploded to bits…
To view this incredible piece of hardware, tune in at 8PM on Channel 5 to assist this epic moment in the Gadget Show’s history as well of our own.
Unfortunately for us, it’s not something we can buy, so you won’t find one under your Christmas tree… too bad.
