175 Degree Wrap Around Gaming Rig

Now here is a gaming rig that I would not mind a bit to install at the NerdBeach quality assurance lab. The setup features an impressive 160 inch curved screen that wraps 175 degrees around the (no doubt happy) gamer. Yeah, that would work nicely.

The system uses a series of rear mounted projectors to create the wrap around illusion, and you can probably speculate about the PC hardware required to drive everything.

Shown is the setup coupled with an F1 racing simulator kit, and the package will set you back about $114,000. But can you really put a price on that kind of gaming goodness? Apparently so…

Formula One

Formula One cars are among the fastest circuit-racing cars in the world, owing to very high cornering speeds achieved through the generation of large amounts of aerodynamic downforce. Formula One cars race at speeds of up to 320 km/h (200 mph) with engines limited in performance to a maximum of 18,000 revolutions per minute (RPM). The cars are capable of lateral acceleration in excess of 5 g in corners.
