Call it a sports toy or a game for filthy rich folks, but the Full Swing Golf simulator is here for you to practice from home. And its just an abundance of space (a room at least 13 feet wide, 20 feet long, and with ceilings 10.5 feet high) and loads of cash that you need to have. The system uses a Windows-based PC and video projector to provide an almost life-sized view of the current hole and course. Right in the warmth of your gaming room, you can enjoy the some of the world’s best courses, including Pebble Beach, Cog Hill, and the Old Course at St. Andrews as it comes pre-loaded with 54 of them
The real key to the simulator is two curtains of infrared beams that sit just in front of the screen. The beams are emitted at 60,000 pulses per second, and as the golf ball passes through them the software on the PC is able to immediately calculate its trajectory, which is then translated to your virtual ball in the game. As a part of the package, the Full Swing simulator allows owners to set up and participate in online tournaments. Celebs like Donald Trump, Rich Gannon, Curt Schilling, Michael Jordan, and Tony Robbins are some of the few who are enjoying this indoor golfing. Add your name to the list by owing a Full Swing Golf simulator for $55,000.
