    Racing simulators are ten a penny, but the closest an FPS player will get to an immersive experience is buying some branded peripherals. Armed with a pre-release level of Battlefield 3, The Gadget Showenlisted a team of design experts to transform a Birmingham studio into an FPS simulator costing 500,000 ($650,000). A four by nine meter video dome surrounds the player as they stand on an omni-directional treadmill that lets you walk wherever you want to go. Ten infra-red motion tracking cameras and a sensor on your gun enables the picture to follow where you point it and a Kinect hack controls your jumping and crouching. The fun doesn't stop there -- 12 paintball markers mean that every time you get shot in the game, you'll feel it. The show airs in the UK on October 24th at 8:00pm, Channel 5. We've got a behind the scenes gallery below (supplied by those lovely people from the show) as well as PR and a trailer after the break.


    Epic? Hell Yes.

    This simulator is probably better suited to a game without a huge arsenal of tanks, planes, and boats Click here to enlarge

    But wow .. this is the way technology is going! Not long 'til the holodeck now ..!

    The future is going to be pretty cool.

    Thing is, this would really suck to play drunk.
