Pod flight simulator offers realistic training at home

It turns out that the classic science fiction film The Last Starfighter was wrong, video games are not actually spaceship training devices. But now a very real option has arrived for those of us looking for flight training at home.

The OVO-4 Home Flight Simulator puts a fully functional ovoid training unit in your home or garage, complete with turbulence effects, an actual 5-position switch for engine ignition, and a three-screen dashboard that effectively mimics the feeling of being in a real cockpit. The whole thing runs on the Microsoft Flight Simulator, but add in physical accoutrements and the entire package will cost you a pretty penny at around $57,000 here.
