A tip from some students at UNC-CH. In case you haven't seen this YouTube video yet:

A game show in the UK built the ultimate Battlefield 3 simulator.

An enclosed igloo dome environment. 5-projector full surround HD video. Omnidirectional motorized treadmill so you can walk/run in 360-degrees at any speed to control your character. Infrared-tracking on a handheld gun to shoot. 800 LED lights to match the game's lighting. Kinects to track jumping and crouching.


an array of paintball guns that shoot you when you get shot in the game.

The end of the video shows a British SAS solider testing the simulator. Very impressive.
