VR and Flight Sims

Howdy, I thought about holding off on posting until I've actually tried it, but there's only so many days left in the Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1232710074/flyinside-fsx is funding an extension for Microsoft Flight Simulator X that will allow you to use it with the Oculus DK2 ...

Re: What's ts the text of the disclaimer?

They had a small wall with what looked like hunting trophies only they were really different Dr. Seuss characters. That sounds very cool!
