Does that thing look cool or what? I’d like one for playing games like Silent Hill and Resident Evil — total isolation, total darkness. Plus, no one would hear me scream and weep, unlike at my apartment.

The object pictured is the top-of-the-line CAE-7000 commercial flight-sim system put out by CAE, a major provider of such things. Delta’s using the CAE-7000 to train its pilots now, so I think I’ll be flying Delta from now on, if only for a chance to ask one of the pilots whether they let him play Descent: Freespace or X3 in one. I’d buy one if they didn’t cost like a fracking million dollars.
