    This is something that I will not bring it to market here, is an affordable way to improve the immersion in the game, it is simply put a cover it is more likely that either black or gray PVC foam is a lightweight material and cheap, clean and very well insulated from outside of you so that you concentrate only on the screen.
    the system is simply a strip of aluminum 3X30, but may be any other material, we can manipulate this action when either conform to our taste, and not expensive.
    We set our monitors support, bend over and we monitor 2 M4-M5 holes to fasten PVC plate.
    as you will see in the render, if only utilizais a monitor or TV, also want to put on the sides will find that after a while of playing will win in immersion and concentration, which will be translated into better times, I hope you like it.

    I thought about it, too. People underestimate how important it is to shield the especially moving platforms from the static environment. I thought about using a big umbrella for the roof and cloth for the sides so I don't have a big weight disadvantage.

    I think a great idea to remove distraction . I also think it is important the relationship of the position of the image as in this video

    Nice! The only thing I don't like the wheel and hands are "covered" by the projector.

    BTW after racing with triples I would never go back to 2D, Nvidia 3D surround is somewhat of buggy but at the moment the best alternative to the VR, despite of the lower resolution (in comparison with VR) but you think you sit in the car and not in front of the screen.
