Kids Building a Battlestar Galactica Viper Flight Simulator

Imagine flying in the cockpit of a Colonial Viper, maybe even right alongside of Starbuck and Apollo. Some enterprising kids are on that. In preparation for the next Bay Area Maker Faire, 5 high school students and some adults from Marin, Oakland, and San Francisco, are working on a full motion flight simulator inspired by Battlestar Galactica.

This Kickstarter project is looking for backers to help make it a reality. There are 27 days to go and it’s already passed its $2,500(USD) goal. As of this writing they have over $4,000, so they’re definitely moving forward with the build.

Go ahead and give them your support if you think it’s worthwhile. Um, a Battlestar Galactica flight sim? Of course it is worthwhile. These kids are our future Boomers, Starbucks and Apollos – hopefully not Baltars. These kids are my heroes.
