We’ve seen numerous racing simulator setups that make playing Gran Turismo feel incredibly life-like. In order to get folks to invest in newer, better, and more expensive rigs, you’ll need to come up with a fresh angle, like the CXC Motion Pro II and its force-feedback steering mechanism that replicates real vehicles down to the fine details. In the case of the Motion Simulation TL3, that incentive comes in the form of the world’s first 200-degree, spherical projection screen that should enable more realistic visuals than you’ve ever experienced.
Billed as “the ultimate professional-level simulation solution,” it features a near-enclosed gaming pod to fully immerse you behind the wheel, whether you’re driving a Ferrari, a Veyron, or a tank you stole off a military base in Grand Theft Auto. With a breathtaking, wraparound display, it allows the faithful recreation of racing visuals down to things you can see out of your periphery, allowing for visual immersion like no other sim before it.
The Motion Simulation TL3 uses a trio of projectors to beam an 8.2-feet wide image, with 5,760 x 1,080 pixels of resolution for an unprecedented level of visuals. Keeping things comfy inside the pod is a set of low-noise cooling fans that suck warm air out of the pod, ensuring you won’t be sweating like a farmer on a tractor while you destroy sidewalks, burn tracks, and go wild across off-road terrains on the best virtual cars in the world. Features include the world’s first variable driving position so you can simulate actual seat placement inside a car, a steering wheel that can be reach-adjusted on the go, a full set of electro/mechanical actuators (heave, pitch, and roll) for realistic driving feel, hydraulic pedals, and more.
As you may have guessed, the Motion Simulation TL3 will actually cost more than many cars, with a price that starts at £34,995.
