Cool Gaming Chair

Festo, an industrial automation company, has introduced the gaming chair to beat all gaming chairs. The system uses "fluidic muscles and mechatronic systems to give users a true sensation of either driving or flying, depending on the software being used." It is certainly a step up from the plywood soap box car you used to sit in to play Gran Turismo. This reminds me of the race car simulator I used to play growing up, which was my dad's lap. He would make engine noises and rumble me around and stuff until I crashed. Then I was thrown through the living room window.
