Get a Jet Fighter Cockpit In Your Living Room

We remember the days when a steering wheel was the height of immersive gaming.

But this new kickstarter project promises to take things to a whole new level, by offering you the chance to have your very own jet fighter cockpit in your living room. A company called Dogfight Boss has designed a self-assembly kit which enables you to become a true top gun in your own home.

It's made out of cardboard, is easy to assemble and disassemble and requires no glue, just a sharp knife. It's fully customisable, to accomodate any extra gadgets you might have and it works with any projecting solution for your flight sims and games; be that multiple screens, projectors, or full-on Oculus Rift.

And it's extremely reasonably priced too: a pdf self-print version will set you back just £49, while £299 gets you the full, ready-to-go model. Smaller child-friendly sizes are also available but, let's face it, you'll be pushing your kids out of the way to have a go on this.

They need to raise £15,000 to finish off and refine the product - there's 23 days to get there, so check out the videos below and get pledging on the Dogfight Boss kickstarter page.

Then you just need the pilot outfit, helmet and aviators and you're good to finally live out those Tom Cruise dreams.
