Submission + - How NASA uses GPUs to build vivid flight simulators (nvidia.com)

skade88 writes: NASA has used flight simulators for years to train pilots. While most pilots starting their careers have 20/13 vision, most flight sims have output suited for people with 20/40 vision. A team at the NASA Ames research center has designed a new flight sim that is suited for 20/10 vision. This new Human Eye Limited display features 9 projectors (4096×2160) providing a resolution of 36 times that of normal HD TVs. It is a pretty amazing setup, I can't wait to get one at home. I think I have my old F-17A flight sim game from Microprose and my old 486 to run it on. those Pixels will be so high-def it will be crazy! :D
