The Gadget Show builds the ultimate Battlefield 3 gaming platform

This looks like an amazing setup, I can’t wait to see it in action, on Five, this monday (24th October at 8pm)…

Armed with a pre-release level of Battlefield 3, The Gadget Show enlisted a team of design experts to transform a Birmingham studio into an FPS simulator costing £500,000 ($650,000). A four by nine meter video dome surrounds the player as they stand on an omni-directional treadmill that lets you walk wherever you want to go. Ten infra-red motion tracking cameras and a sensor on your gun enables the picture to follow where you point it and a Kinect hack controls your jumping and crouching.
