    well I guess if you like claustrophobia, then cool, otherwise utterly pointless.

    Now maybe if it were sound proofed. That way you could game all night at high volumes without annoying anyone.

    Anyone notice the box of tissues under the seat. I think this is used for more than just gaming in private.

    I`d say both. Imagine walking into your office, opening your cupboard, and seeing some forty year old fat guy, sitting in there with a bag of cheese puffs playing dungeons and dragon online... That would be pretty funny.

    ACCESS DENIED.

    Also, in the gaming community, nothing is cool.

    And no, I aint not no hater.

    That`s not a double negative, it`s a triple.

    OK, I got it to work and it`s still not cool. It`s a computer in a big wooden box that looks like one of those mall photo booth things. Why would you need to play games in a box? Not enough privacy in mom`s basement?

    And it`s not for the gamer, really. It`s more for the courtesy of those outside the box that are now buffered from the endless stream of profanities that you get in each box of Unreal Tournament.

    Personally I`d go with a car window to facilitate rolling it down for all the girls you`ll inevitably get.

    Actually, when I first saw that, I thought pathetic, but now that I think more about it, I think, "room-saver." I mean, that thing takes up about a quarter of the room my desk, computer and chair take up and who knows, maybe the creator has a enclosed-area fetish.

    That still takes up about as much space as a regular computer and chair.... just build a few shelves...

    Unless this wasn`t the person`s intention.

    Was the intention to have a personal area to play games without interruption?

    Either way, it`s not that great... wouldn`t you become blind in there? Or maybe even suffocate?

    Just imagine, playing a scary video game or watching a scary movie in that pod, someone comes into your room, your stuck in the pod and can`t hear them or anything, they come right beside you and BAM start banging on the side of the pod and make you jump so badly your head pops through the top of the pod!

    Um yea, I think this is one of the stupidest ideas ever; besides what I said above, no space, no air flow. It would just be bad.
