Some people will go to great lengths to conceal their gaming activities, even going so far as to purchase an elaborate workstation that's obviously meant to facilitate their addiction. But for those who aren't ashamed to flaunt their virtual prowess, especially on the digital raceway, something like this is more in order.

The "Virtual GT Personal Racing Simulator" takes its genre to the extreme, securing you behind the wheel with a high-performance gaming computer, built-in speakers, MasterCraft racing seat, force-feedback steering wheel, and four "vibration transducers" that, if working properly, could make you sick to your stomach. And if those don't make you nauseated, there's a good chance that the price will: Uncrate says these simulators go for somewhere between $17,000 and $22,500..

But if you're still determined to combine work with pleasure, you could get one of VRX's " Triple Screen Limited Edition 001 " simulators and save one of the LCDs for spreadsheets.
