Twitch Boy: So if I buy a rusted out '89 Geo Metro with 150000 miles everyone will think I'm packing a 12-incher?
skinink: I wish a HUD could be overlaid on part of the windshield. That would be pretty nice and it could be restricted to maybe three or four elements showing, tops. Speed, gas, alerts. Maybe the fourth element could be navigation queues, like arrows indicating when to turn, distance info from goal.
mjjt: It's a dying meme - like the "everyone who buys a lottery ticket is a moron" which got squashed when Farkers finally understood the reward of just contemplating what you would do with the money.
exatron: I know a place where you can get your 12-incher for $5.
rev. dave: Rhino_man: rev. dave: I drove one in the new game Gran Turismo 6. If the game is accurate, it is not too bad, but the GT-R Touring car is much better. It tends to spin out a lot and is hard to slow down, also jumps the curb in turns a lot if you are not used to it. Sony calls the game a driving simulator. Not sure I could drive such a fast car in real life since you don't get to restart when you crash.I'm pretty sure Top Gear tested this and found that, yes, Gran Turismo is insanely realistic... but your lap time will be a good deal slower in real life because of the fear of death.Good to know, I love the game, learning a lot about cars that I never really cared much about before.The 2 tracks I had the hardest time driving on with it were Willow Springs, very difficult, but I could not keep it on the super difficult Nürburgring track.
leadmetal: One of these days this idea of needing a computer interface between a person and the world for everything will come to an end.
Rhino_man: bigsmellypenis: HUD was created before video games.Yes, but the HUD from TFA is clearly inspired by video games.[i2.cdn.turner.com image 620x348]Funny thing about articles... if you read them, you're less likely to say irrelevant things in the thread.
