This is a world first. A unique FPS simulator that turns gaming into reality as you move, aim, fire and get shot within a 360-degree immersive environment. Using a pre-release copy of Battlefield 3 and a team of top technology experts from across Europe we’ve built a truly one of a kind simulator. Centred on the world’s first, portable omni-directional treadmill (designed by Swedish company MSE Weibull) the simulator lets you control the movements of a Battlefield 3 character with your own body. Other key technology employed includes: an Igloo Vision projection dome; 12 paintball markers that allow the player, in real time, to feel the enemy gunfire experienced in the game; a wireless gun system; ambient LED lighting; and an Xbox Kinect camera hack. — The full Gadget Show episode premiered in the UK on Monday 24th October 2011 at 8pm on Channel 5 and highlights from the episode can be found here: www.youtube.com www.channel5.com/thegadgetshow www.twitter.com/thegadgetshow www.facebook.com/thegadgetshow A full press release can be downloaded at the following address: www.yousendit.com — For more information on the contributors who helped to make this simulator happen: MSE Weibull [Omni-Directional Treadmill and Motion Tracking] www.mseab.se Igloo Vision [Projection and 360-degree Dome] www.igloovision.com aps events and media Ltd [Visual Manipulation] www.thinkaps.com Extra Dimensional Technologies [Ambient Lighting] http Running in the Halls [Kinect Hack] www.rith.co …
