Unbelievable... Has anyone seen this motion platform?

Recommended Posts

This has to be the most amazing motion simulator/display technology I've ever seen...Its based around the new Elumens 180 degree parabolic projection system. On top of that, it builds in a true motion platform! You have to check out the videos to see what this thing is capable of. I'd love to hear any feedback from anyone who's tried either the display itself or the full motion sim:Elumens VisionDome Parabolic Display Systemhttp://www.elumens.comCobra Pneumatic Motion Simulatorhttp://members.cox.net/rwcobraHere's a few pics:The VisionDomehttp://ftp.avsim.com/dcforum/User_files/3d7c9f1f3a2255d4.jpgThe Cobra Motion Platformhttp://ftp.avsim.com/dcforum/User_files/3d7c9f283a41dc49.jpgWOW is all I can say!Elrondhttp://members.rogers.com/eelvish/Boycott-RIAA.gif]"A musician without the RIAA, is like a fish without a bicycle."[/font://http://members.rogers.com/eelvish/B...cle."[/b][/font

Hi Elrond,This is just the sort of technology that I've been hoping will become semi-mainstream before I become too arthritic to use a computer. I think many of us would agree that if we could get motion simulation and that sort of wrap-around in our own homes, that it really would be as real as it gets. Now given the computer I used 20 odd years ago cost three times as much as my current rig and had about 0.01 percent of my current rig's horsepower, I am hoping this sort of thing will be a "typical" add-on in years to come, much like a yoke or surround sound setup is today.But mate, I can't really wait around. You want to go halves now?
