175-Degree Display Fills Your Entire Vision With Gaming Goodness

The makers of this utterly fantastic 160-inch behemoth of a wraparound display — a Swedish company called Norman Design — claim the entire rig is actually portable. But since it takes at least an hour to set up, and weighs over 50kg, we’d be content with just leaving this permanently assembled in our gaming rooms.

To fill that 160-inches of screen real estate the display uses a series of rear-mounted projectors seamlessly blended together, powered by a sufficiently capable gaming PC running special software.

The results, of course, are stunning. Completely wrapping you in the on-screen action. But there’s a catch, and you can probably easily guess what it is. The screen actually comes as part of an F1 racing simulator kit, complete with a motion-capable seat, that sells for over $US114,000. Ouch. The screen can be purchased separately, however, we’re going to assume it will still set you back as much as a reasonably priced car. [CruelRacing via Born Rich]
