    I'm still building mine, drafted it in sketchup. I'll be doing a mini pin, already have the monitor (think it's 23", but now can't remember), and will just be using an external computer. Basically, using the cabinet as a sort of peripheral.

    I started cutting my cabinet, but had a pretty severe allergic reaction to the MDF. I'm trying to get my dust collection system in place and a better mask before I start that again.

    Oh man.. watching video of Tron on these things makes me REALLY want to complete mine! Anyone experiment with head tracking?

    That's awesome that FX2 added that second screen support. Does it stop zooming when you plunge, too?

    Lots of exciting things on the horizon for virtual pinball!

    Quoted from neurokinetik:

    I initially built this as a conversion to my triple-screen racing simulation rig

    That looks nice. I've been looking into 8020 to rebuild my own rig. Would you mind sharing some plans if you have them? It's sort of daunting to enter the world of 8020..

    I've always wondered about angle of the monitor. I can definitely see what you mean. I also think it looks best to at least tilt set the monitor into the cab at least a little bit. The cabinets with the screen set flush to the top (or close to it) look pretty unnatural.

    Anyone build a virtual pin cocktail cab? I've been thinking about it.. it would be nice to have something that doesn't necessarily take up the space where a machine could reside. I've also contemplated making into more of a bar table..

    I've also thought about making a controller stand (similar to what's in that VR video) and wall mounting a TV on a swivel so it could go landscape or portrait. I like the upright cabs that VP cabs makes, those look pretty sharp.
