On next week’s Gadget Show, the team will be showcasing their latest creation, an immersive FPS simulator.
The challenge for next week’s show, which airs on Channel 5 at 8PM here in the UK on 24 October, is to create an immersive FPS simulator. The simulator cost around £500,000 to make and features the world’s first portable omni-directional treadmill (designed by Swedish company MSE Weibull), 12 paintball markers to help them feel the pain, a wireless weapon, and it’s all pojected inside a 360-degree, 4 metre high and 9 metre wide video dome.
Having given up on the Gadget Show due to the constant shouting by the presenters and Jason Bradbury leaping around like a twelve year old, this is probably worth a watch if you’re a fan of shotoers and Battlefield 3 which is the game used in the challenge.
