Combine multiple projectors, an igloo-shaped screen, a special tent, a motion-tracking paintball gun, treadmills and a PC that can run Battlefield 3 and you’ve got The Gadget Show’s Ultimate Battlefield 3 Simulator.
Placing the player in the midst of the military shooter’s action, it allows proper movement through the game and even simulates bullet hits with electronically-controlled paintball guns.
It’s one of those completely bonkers (and rather expensive) ideas that somehow just about works, apart from the bit where the machine malfunctions and starts shooting Jason indiscriminately. We quite like that bit.
