This is the HD World, an amazing ultra-high definition military F-16 simulator that runs on 120 Intel Dual Core PCs with $400 graphic cards inside a special industrial casing. Looking at this video, I want one in my living room.

L-3 Link says that their simulator gives you 20-40 visual acuity—current sims do 20-80—which it is almost close enough to fool the eye. 20-20 is perfect visual acuity, but it's still not possible with current projector technology.

Not as large as the Mersive 360-degree combat simulator but much more accurate and visually impressive.

All while running the actual F-16 operational program. I don't know if it is the most complex and accurate, but I have to find a way to get one of these. Pronto. [Military.com]
