Game – (Visual – Physical – Environmental) Simulators.

Filed in TechSpot 0 comments

Years back at fun fairs and amusement parks (and even now), there used to be this machine in which people (some 20-30) enter, are seated inside and are rocked back and forth. Might sound crazy but that’s the way you see it from outside. On the inside, you are seated in front of  this big screen which is more of a visual simulator. You are on a rail track and you are thrown into this crazy and toss’y ride of some 5 minutes. I loved entering those stuff. But those rides were pretty costly, so at a time, I could only take just a couple.

Those ‘games’ were all pre-programmed. I used to imagine what if we could be something of an ‘input’. Means our actions will bring about all the resulting reaction, and toss us around likewise. 😀 Check out this video. I dunno’ if we will see this is usual houses, cuz the mechanism involved is obviously complicated hydraulic systems and robotics.

I have seen flight sims and driving sims of the stationary kind. This is just too awesome… 😀
