Fujitsu’s ultimate train simulator is not for kids

[CEATEC 2008] I don’t know if you remember that PS2 train-simulation game called Train Simulator Real (see video), but this is kind of like that, except that Fujitsu is using 1080p real-world footage instead of 3D graphics. It is meant to be realistic enough to train drivers, but it can also be used for educational purposes in places like museums. The novelty is that this is a web application. Yes, they can deliver 1080p at 60fps and sell this train simulator as a SaaS (software as a service). Of course, something that is “on rail” like atrain simulator is ideal for this type of video-streaming application. I doubt that it is as fun as the PS2 video-game, but in terms of simulation, this is as close as you can get from driving the real thing.
