OVO-4 Home Flight Simulator is a $57,000 Nerd Capsule
November 14th, 2011
Are you one of those guys who loves to buy those expensive model planes and then wreck it on the maiden voyage? Maybe it’s time to forget remote control planes and get into the cockpit. Of a simulator of course. I wouldn’t trust you at 100 feet, forget 10,000 feet, there’s no way anybody is giving you a pilot’s license.
Just buy this $57,000 (USD) egg-shaped contraption that serves as a flight simulator and a sort of nerd-womb for when you really need to get away and have a nap or a cry. The new OVO-4 Home Flight Simulator is a fully-sealed enclosure with three 24 inch monitors and a full movement system to make the experience more life-like. At that price, I would hope so.
Using Microsoft Flight Simulator X, the OVO-4 will emulate the twisting, pitching, slipping, accelerating and braking, on the runway. While in flight, vibration systems replicate turbulence, runway irregularities, engine vibration and jolting from ignition.
Other features include: Sleeping inside when your wife sees the bill and kicks you out and the ability to set it to auto-pilot when you off yourself because you suddenly realize that your life savings are gone.
