    Hi boys and gals.

    I just tripped over this video of a new gaming monitor(or whatever it is called)

    Don't stop the video before you've seen it all through - there are images of racinggames demonstrated with this product, which is what caught my attention thoroughly.

    Look for yourselves.

    I don't honestly know if this is a cheaper alternative to a big widescreen panel, as it looks like (and, I am unsure but it also sounded like) as if you need a projector, but this sure as hell looks interesting!

    I would certainly love one of these babies for my up and coming cockpit build.

    What do you guys say?

    Wow this is cool. A simracing would be really exciting with it. :)

    The jDome looks awesome, the FOV is amazing, you actually see as far as your eyes can see! Looks relatively cheap, but they will slap a pricetage bigger than my head on it.

    Also, the seams can get annoying and disruopt the view. Colour is very washed out. Prejectors can often be better than HDTV, but this just takes away the detail and colour, they need to fix that before they can go farther with it. I like the idea, I think this can go far.

    Parachute in you living room anyone? :)
