The Simulators

Simulation is in the show title and as you can imagine it was a lot more than just planes, trains and automobiles. I could never imagine how hard it actually is to refuel a jet in midair.

I spent a few minutes trying to make the connection and just about took both planes out of the sky. Thank goodness it was just a simulation and not the real thing.

The guys at the front of the plane have a difficult job too. Contrary to what you see in the movies, these big jets can't do a barrel roll without breaking into pieces.

Helicopters are an even bigger challenge and can't go upside down either.

It's been quite some time since we've seen virtual reality on the consumer side of things, but the technology is still being worked on.

This would be the ultimate simulator for every Battlefield 3 player out there. The sphere moves when you walk and you can go in all directions. VR goggles take care of the display and your gun is tracked with sensors.

We didn't get a clear answer on the price, but it's too tall for most basements anyhow. The garage is a different story, but I think the price is still the biggest obstacle.

Touch screens also dominated the panel displays.

For some reason I don't think boats are piloted with Logitech controls, but this company wanted to show their massive display system.

This simulator is used to train fire personnel who drive the large trucks that hold all of the water. The 0 to 60 time is close to infinity and you can roll a full truck at 20 miles per hour. I had to put that claim to the test.

Here is the full sized version complete with hydraulics so you can feel the massive body roll while turning a semi loaded with material.
