Fully Enclosed Racing Pod…err, Box

October 25th, 2008 by Jordan

Just when you think you’ve seen it all, something comes along which pushes the envelope of racing pod construction even further.  GTPlanet member GTP_joeninety has built a fully-enclosed driving simulator for his living room.  No corners were cut, with the ‘box’ featuring everything from interior sound proofing to forced-air ventilation.  It also includes…

  • Adjustable racing seat.
  • Logitech G25 steering wheel.
  • Logitech G51 5.1 surround sound speaker system.
  • LCD HDTV.
  • Keyboard, headset, microphone (for future use?)…
  • Interior lighting.
  • PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 3 consoles.

Why go to the trouble of creating such an enclosure?  Joe cites his family not caring for the volume at which he plays the game – something which I’m sure a lot of us GT players can identify with.  See more pictures of Joe’s setup right here.
