Want. Now.

I`ve seen geekier though. I read an article once about some dude who made something similar to that, only not inside a closet. However, it was specifically outfitted to play Battlestar Galactica games. Now THAT`S sad.

I could build something more appealing than that.

The only practical use I see for this is if you work from home, or a home office.

I could live in one of those. If it had a toilet-chair and a fridge I`d never come out. Ever.

I think they should name it the "Masturbation Station".

Other than providing, ahem, privacy, I can`t think of any benefit to having one of these.

Although this is an interesting idea, someone would lock it shut as a prank and end up killing someone. Plus I have way too much gas for this to be practical. PS I actually farted 3 times writing this.

What a great cremation box when the tangled heap of wires catch on fire. All your room mate or parents do is broom you into a folgers can and dump you out to sea. F`ing GAY!!!

"I doubt this guy ever has anyone come into his sad little room. If they did they would ask, "Whats that black thing?" his only reply could be, "That`s my box of sorrow"."

His parents probably come into his room once in a while.

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.

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?

One massive "fail" with this. Whoever made it has neglected to make the CD Drive accessible. Great while immersing yourself in a game, utter crap when you need to sift through that stack of discs that you never labelled and need to sort out.

5 speaker surround sound?

Hmm..go one step further and have sound proofing in the walls, and it`ll be good to go!

Don`t think I have, N0n.

What is it about simply having a door that makes it so much better?

Couldn`t he turn off the lights and turn sound up and get the same effect, without going to the trouble of building a giant gaming pod?

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.

He should just say what we are all thinking and call it the "self-entertainment center" if you know what I mean.

Especially if it`s soundproofed, it`ll make the games you play feel more real by blocking off all other senses.

Anyone else think you could put a car window in the side for ventilation, and also to increase the awesome factor?
Personally I`d go with a car window to facilitate rolling it down for all the girls you`ll inevitably get.

I`m going to build one.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.
