    Without a native way to attach peripherals like a wheel, pedals and shifter, this seems like a poorly thought out device (I looked into it more and no, it really doesn't have anything). How can you make a gaming chair and not allow for that? Nearly every gaming chair/rig in existence was purpose built for racing games. It looks like it may be possible to duck-tape them on though.

    I can't find info on the screen(s) coming down but I wouldn't want to be looking up all the time.

    Not that anyone here would buy this monstrosity. That price is absurd. That said, I like that Acer bothered making this ridiculous thing at all.

    Custom built this probably would still cost less. But it does look like... it could be out of some movie.

    ...which should put the player with "deep impact vibration effects" directly into the action.

    And that Imperator Works IW-R1 is a $3.6K chair. That's also worth mentioning. Also interesting: comes in two 180kg + 60kg boxes/530lbs total.

    I'd get one if I had a big room spare to use as a game room. It would look great next to a pool table and pinball machine, some SEGA arcades and a massive TV/seating area. Bar in the corner, of course.

    If you had the money to buy this, you could probably just put a nice 80/20 race sim rig with DD wheel and Heusinkveld pedals and triple screens and VR right next to it.

    That concept art so desolate. Just alone in a giant concrete room inside his gaming metamorphosis pod.
