  • What I find neat about the project is that it's the opposite of what we normally envision for a military flight sim. Indeed, it's almost an example on how to go about getting the most bang for your buck as a civilian flight enthusiast. TTRE in its current form uses consumer gear you can buy yourself right now, from the glasses it's employing (Vuzix Wrap 1200DX) as a cheaper form of VR to the joystick and throttle (the Saitek X52 Pro).

    If you like the idea of a wearable , but your budget can't afford some of the high-end solutions out there, the Vuzix Wrap 1200DX might be worth a look. This video eyewear product has hit pre-order directly from Vuzix and offers nice features for under $500. The glasses are the world's first all-digital solution offering an HDMI interface.

Vuzix Wrap 1200 Video Eyewear review | Flite Test


3D glasses are nothing new -- we've been tossing on specs at the theater for at least a couple of years. But in typical fashion, the Wrap 1200 brings a pair of displays directly to the glasses, simulating a 75-inch 3D screen. Tiny 852 x 480-pixel monitors display native 16:9 content on the three-ounce specs, and iPhone and component video cables are included in the box, letting you plug in to a variety of content (there's no HDMI support, however). The display supports side-by-side and 3D, and you can also revert back to 2D content if things don't pan out as expected. The Vuzix Wrap 1200 is rated at three hours of playback with the pair of included rechargeable AA batts, or you can substitute lithium ion batteries for up to seven hours of use. Jump past the break for the full rundown from Vuzix, or hit up the source link to grab your own pair for $500.

Update: Originally, we reported that the Vuzix Wrap 1200 only supports anaglyph 3D, when it is in fact capable of side-by-side display as well. The post has been updated to reflect this correction.
