Microsoft Flight Simulator X just got cooler: when you strap the $400 Vuzix VR920 headest on and look around, the camera follows your movements. The goggles show you an interactive 3D cockpit, while onscreen, onlookers see a 2D version. Vuzix (which was called Icuiti until a week or so ago) will soon launch an A/V version for $350 which connects to DVD players, phones or anything else with a composite video out.

This was an article I read on your Blog sheet we well as the additional paragraph written by PJS100 above. when you strap the $400 Vuzix VR920 headest on and look around, the camera follows your movements...God help me) This VR920 arrived with no drivers for Vista or XP... .I also purchased a Vuzix VR920 and couldn't get it to work and after reading your comments decided it best to send it back,unfortunatly or fortunatly i sent it to the wrong
distributor and came to find out that the E-bay distributor I origianlly purchased it from had a no return policy and an exchange policy of 7 days on defective items.
The distributor goes by the E-mail handel of AMYPEARSALL
regardless after speaking with Amy over the internet and explaining my situation she directed me to a Vizux Tech by the name of Todd Ferguson (585-359-5909).Once I recieved
back my Vizux and spoke to one of their Technicians I founf that there was nothing wrong with it that my problem was with setting up my vidio gameing card to accept the Vuzix as an additional Monitor which appears after you plug in the vuzix...before hand you will only see either a Laptop or Desktop monitor.I wrote this because I realize people sometimes don't really know what there talking about and give others bad advise.....The Vuzix works just fine and I also have a Vista system if you work with the Vuzix on flight simulator you will find that it provides you with Spatial Disorientation which most Austronauts pay alot of money to attain and learn from some 50 or 60 thousand feet above the Earth,although this can't copy the effects in every way it is a least expensive
alternative to simulated flight training.
