This 160-inch, 175-degree curved screen is the kind of item that could render you incapable of stringing two coherent words together. Whether this is because this screen will wrap you up in gaming glory, or because it ridiculously expensive (more on that later) you can't help but be dazzled by it.
We'll help you find your words. It. Is. Glorious.
Here's the scoop. It's purpose built by Norman Design for customers who use it for immersive Formula 1training. The 110-pound screen uses a series of rear-mounted projectors powered by a PC that runs special software and it comes with a movable F1 body that is part of the F1 simulator set up. It sells for $114,000.
Wait! Don't stop reading!
Of course the screen can be purchased separately from the whole F1 thing. After all, I'm sure there are plenty of other uses for a 160-inch, curved screen. Pretty much anything would be better a beast of a TV screen like this, right?
Prices for the screen alone weren't listed, but it would likely be considerably more than what you'd find at your local Best Buy. But, if you are a serious gamer or movie fan who doesn't plan on moving in ten years or so, it may be worth the investment.
You'll have to inquire with the gang over at Norman Design as to the price sans the F1 kit; don't forget shipping as they are located in Sweden. The upside to all this is they do have a leasing option you can ask about.
While you contemplate financing options sit back and enjoy the demo of a user tearing through F1 2011 and DiRT 3 with a Thrustmaster T 500 RS Racing wheel.
