" The object of this game is to pilot an F-14 jet fighter and shoot down as many enemy planes as possible. This video was taken in my shop. It shows what happens when you get hit by the enemy. This spin is shown at actual speed. "

The Sega R-360 preservation project
The device which most caught my eye was the Sega R-360, a cockpit with an amazing
full 360 degrees of motion.
With the motion toned down, added controls, and linked to any of the great software we all know and love, this would be an unbeatable sim experience in your basement / den / playroom.
Now there's a project for someone!
In the meantime there are devoted individuals keeping this iconic piece of arcade hardware up and running...
