36 Shocking Reality Simulators

From Womb Simulation Seating to Stylish Coffin Simulators

— May 15, 2013 — Autos
Reality can be a drag, but luckily engineers and developers all over the world have been working tirelessly to produce reality-escaping tools for die-hard gamers everywhere.

These simulators can do everything from completing everyday tasks to fulfilling your wildest dreams. Through wacky little cartoon characters, the ‘Anime Fishing Simulators’ can teach you how to reel in a big one, while the ‘Super Race Simulators’ will put you in the driver’s seat—an F1 racecar driver, that is.

This wide array of simulators can also expose you to some freaky experiences. The ‘Womb Simulation Seating,' for example, will make you feel as if you’re back in your mom’s womb. ‘Stylish Coffin Simulators’ do pretty much the opposite: they let you experience what it’s like to be deceased.

With these simulators, it’s clear that technology is advancing at a startlingly fast rate. Soon most job training will be done with virtual reality devices as well as phobia treatment and disaster preparedness. Is virtual reality becoming the only reality?
