The ultimate Battlefield 3 experience

Forget about your expensive multi-core, dual graphics card PCs with 32GB of RAM. If you really want to get the ultimate Battlefield 3 experience, this one-of-kind first person shooter simulator is it. It doesn’t get any more realistic than this.

Put together for British TV programme The Gadget Show by a team of top technology experts from across Europe, turns turns gaming into reality as you move, aim, fire and get shot within a 360-degree immersive environment.

According to the YouTube description and as seen in the video footage above, the simulator consists of:

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: 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.

Pretty crazy stuff. We already have golf and flight simulators for leisure. Could this be the future for upmarket cyber cafes here?
