Flight Sims Get External LCD Gauges
July 26th, 2007
At the recent E3 show, Saitek showed off this cool set of external desktop gauges that can be used alongside flight simulators and other games.
Adding a new dimension of immersion to sim games, each individual color LCD screen can display live information fed to it by special game drivers. They’ve already got a working Microsoft Flight Simulator X driver, and expect to support more games in future.
The LCDs should retail for about $99 each, and multiple displays can be used at the same time. They’re expected to be released later this year.
I’m looking forward to the hacking potential of these add-ons.
