    You're thinking about it the wrong way. You need to buy her one, too.

    And a new house to put them in.

    OCUK had something similar for sale at one stage... At several grand for one of them (as in £4-5k), I don't think they went like hot cakes. I can't see the addition of ROG/Roccat/CoolerMaster style gaming angles and RGB making this any more popular... and likely even more expensive, too. I'm gonna estimate £8k for this one... with monitors, PC and peripherals on top.

    Not really... Not unless the seat back goes all the way forward to face flat on the ground in front - That would be 0º. It has 50º of tilt.

    TBH, most simmers (driving, aircraft, space), who are the target market for this, will likely build their own better suited custom pod or simpit anyway... I was considering one for Elite, as it'd be far cheaper.

    The chair looks like a rebranded/modified MWE Emperor, which go for about £7k

    My chair regularly experiences "deep impact vibration". It adds to the sensory experience.

    chair looks like a twelve-year-old`s wet dream

    do away with the the screens and wear a hmd
    and then steal granny`s parker-knoll recliner and deck it out with christmas tree lights
    bosh- saved yourself enough money to build a really badass machine
