Kids' Bedroom Replicates 737 Cockpit, Doubles As Flight Simulator
According to Gizmodo, Laurent Aigon has spent the last five years constructing aforementioned bedroom/cockpit. Aigon, who is from Lacanau, France, isn't a pilot nor an engineer, by the way. He's a waiter who once aspired to be a pilot. After much study, he put together a control panel and screen, and added "five networked monitors... he's made it possible to simulate journeys to destinations as far-flung as Sydney and Rio de Janeiro. His copilots, presumably, sleep in the bunkbeds to his right."
When not playing in his kids' room, Aigon has been asked to lecture at the Institute of Aircraft Maintenance at Bordeaux-Merignac, which has used his creation to train students. Watch the video and take a quick trip, yourself.
