NVIDIA's GeForce LAN 6 Event and Digital Storm Surround PC
10/15/2011 by: John Oram
This weekend, BSN* is on board the USS Hornet dry docked aircraft carrier attending NVIDIA's GeForce LAN 6 event. GeForce LAN is back and features a BYOC (Bring Your Own Computer) area, around-the-clock tournaments, contests for prizes, and an exhibit area featuring the latest in gaming.

When we walked up the gangway and onto the aircraft hanger deck, we noticed a race car simulator. We quickly got our Alienware laptop setup in the BYOC area where every seat was claimed with all kinds of gear. Then, we jumped into line to test NVIDIA's latest games on their gaming computers.

While our editor, Anshel Sag, was busy blasting away the latest warrior games, the other BSN* editor gravitated back over to Digital Storm's ODE gaming computer with DiRT 3 software. The real attraction grabbing our attention is the $30,000 tri-monitor, full motion racing simulator.

Everybody had a good laugh when this editor took his spin behind the steering wheel. We just need one of those $30,000 tri-monitor, full motion racing simulators and few months of practice. [Your grandkids are rolling around laughing. Ed.]
