Home-Made Combat Simulator

There's a long established symbiosis between the military and gaming communities - the military invented the original technologies, the gaming industry adopted these technologies for consumer applications, which then grew like gangbusters, which then ultimately cycled back to influence how military simulation and training applications are created and executed.
All I know is that the lines between entertainment and training have certainly been blurred with games like Call of Duty. And that it’s all pretty freakin’ cool if you keep it in perspective and know that sitting on your couch playing a game has nothing to do with what our military forces do.
Check out this video from the UK’s The Gadget Show to see how they build an first-person-shooter simulator for the Battlefield 3 game.
