One of a kind, Personal Gaming and Media Dome. I built this as a prototype for an immersive multi-function flight, racing and space combat gaming platform after playing a Star Wars Battle Pod at Dave and Busters.

The full cabinet is about 60" deep by 75" wide. Depth from screen optimized to get the dome in your peripheral vision. At this size, it is better suited for kids, teens and smaller-mid-sized adults. If you are a body type for an NBA center or NFL linebacker, you may not fit comfortably without modification.

The Dome is made of heat formed Acrylic and painted with theater-projection optimized reflective paint on the inside and death-star-grey on the outside. The outer seating enclosure is bolted to the dome and the two pieces can be separated for transport.

Optoma 3D 1080p 3200 Lumen Projector
Klipsch ProMedia THX Speaker System and Sub beneath the seat
Includes these systems: Wii U, PS3, xBox 360
-plus any games that are physical copies (I don't think I can transfer over any that are tied to xBox Live / Nintendo, PS Network)
- also works with any HDMI source (PC, XBOne, PS4, etc)
Spare Circular Mirrors for reflected projection (current setup)
LED Lighting
Experimental Lens Parts for direct projection (future enhancement)
Mercedes Sports Car Seat

A utility trailer or multiple trips with a pickup truck would be necessary to move it. Sort of like a playground / swing-set.. :)

Price is or best reasonable offer. I'm flexible but not in any particular hurry or need to sell it. Just considering re-arranging the rec room and this is pretty big. The only trades/ partial trades I'd be interested in would be for a number of pinball or arcade games:

Donkey Kong Cabaret-Style Cabinet
Ms Pac Cabaret-Style Cabinet
Galaga
Tempest
Ice Cold Beer or Zeke's Peak
Street Fighter II

..and deals involving some 90's Bally / Williams pinballs
(Medieval Madness, Theatre of Magic, Creature from the Black Lagoon, Cactus Canyon, etc)
